    Geckolepis maculata: Learning a New Species

    I first heard of the genus Geckolepis a few years ago from online photos and was immediately drawn to their cartoon-like features with short, thick legs and their typical gecko “smiling” faces. Unfortunately, extensive searches on Google proved that there was very little information available on them let alone purchase availability and I had no better luck in the months to years in between looking them up.

    Party Geckos!

    A few months ago, I found myself staring at a room full of reptiles to feed, cages to clean, and had to face the realization that I no longer had any interest in the bins full of scaly babies.

    The Leopard Gecko Wiki was originally created in August of 2007 to provide a searchable database of accurate Leopard Gecko information for breeders, keepers, and prospective owners of Leopard Geckos.
