Where in the world?
Dry grasslands and deserts of southwestern Asia.
Leopard Geckos eat a variety of invertebrates, and are specifically known to consume spiders, scorpions, centipedes and beetles.
These geckos can intentionally detach their tails, leaving the twitching tail to distract predators while the gecko escapes.
Unlike most other geckos, Leopard Geckos have eyelids and their toes have claws instead of sticky pads.
Did you know?
Leopard Geckos are named for their spotted pattern. However, these lizards stalk their prey like cats, even twitching their tail before striking!
