Behind the curtain of captive husbandry, one gecko species thrives, while another will not. To understand the species, their environment, anatomy and biology, must further studied. All animals have species-specific needs. Some needs are minimal some are greatly complex. Some needs are obvious while others are obscure and unknown. However these needs must be met to provide health, a quality life, and comfort for captive geckos.
Geckos are the most varied group of lizard species on the planet.
