Gecko lizards, also called gecko, are very popular among reptile enthusiasts. There are more than 2,000 species of gecko lizards, and there are many different skin and color patterns. The most common gecko lizards are Leopard Gecko and Crested Gecko. Gecko Gecko is not yet fully equipped with a complete skeleton and immune system, so it is harder to take care of.
The young lizard is terrified and surprised. However, since the lizards are young, they have to adapt to handling, and later they will not be afraid of their hands. However, you should try to handle the young lizard at least 7 centimeters in size. If a young lizard is brought home, do not attempt to handle it for the first two weeks and wait for the lizard to adapt to the new environment.
If the lizards have adapted to the new habitat, they should practice for 5 to 15 minutes a day. The lizard will run for a short time so that it will not be stressed, and it will gradually increase in time as you get used to it. Wash your hands thoroughly before and after touching the lizard. This is because lizards are carriers of the disease-causing bacteria Salmonella.
Little lizards eat small insects, fruits and vegetables. It is good to feed small crickets or wheat worms every day. It should be noted that the size of the insects should not be greater than the head length of the lizard. Because lizards swallow their prey at a time. As the size of the lizard grows larger, you can feed larger insects. Lizards are sensitive to temperature and humidity, so record the temperature and humidity in the cage daily.
