Have a picky snake that eats lizards? Our Mediterranean house gecko are captive bred & are free of parasites unlike wild caught.
The Mediterranean gecko is a relatively small, 4 - 5 in (10 - 13 cm), species.
Males are slightly larger than females and have a “V”-shaped vent. These lizards can live up to 10 years if taken care of properly. They are a good lizard for beginner reptile owners since they are hardy and fairly easy to care for.
Habitat and Tank Requirements:
As the name suggests, the Mediterranean gecko is an Old-World species native to Southern Europe and Northern Africa. They do great in bioactive type setups. Be sure to put enough plants, rocks, and wood in the tank for your lizard to hide in and climb on. One adult House Gecko only needs a 10-15 gallon tank. They can be kept in groups of 2 or 3 in a 30-40 gallon tank. A screen cover is recommended for your tank, as it allows better airflow and heating. A comfortable temperature for these lizards is around 75-80º F during the day with a slight drop at night. LEDs or other low-wattage light bulbs work best for maintaining these temperatures. A small heat pad is recommended for basking, if your house is cold. Your tank should have a small, shallow bowl of water that is cleaned daily. This is for your lizard to drink from as well as wade in. Some lizards won’t drink from a bowl. In this case some sort of dropper or mister is recommended. Spray the tank with a mister every day to every other day.
Our house geckso are feeding on flightless fruit flies. But house Geckos will aslo feed on small crickets, mealworms, wax worms, and any other insect small enough for them to ingest. It is recommended that food be dusted with calcium to prevent bone softening.
