Discover the Fascinating World of Mourning Geckos!

Are you looking for an intriguing and low-maintenance addition to your reptile collection? Look no further! Mourning Geckos Lepidodactylus lugubris are the perfect pets for both novice and experienced reptile enthusiasts. These captivating creatures are known for their unique reproductive strategy and charming behavior.

Why are they called Mourning geckos? When French scientists discovered them in 1836, since there were no males, they thought the females where mourning for their lost mates. SURPRISE! There's NO males!

Here’s why Mourning Geckos should be your next pet purchase:

Unparalleled Reproductive Marvel: Mourning Geckos are parthenogenetic, meaning they reproduce without males. All individuals are females, and they can lay fertile eggs on their own. Witness the wonder of nature as your gecko clone colony grows right before your eyes!

Low Maintenance: These small geckos are easy to care for and thrive in a variety of environments. They require minimal space, making them ideal for small living spaces or adding to your current terrarium setup.

Active and Entertaining: Mourning Geckos are nocturnal and exhibit fascinating behaviors such as climbing, exploring, and vocalizing. They are social animals and can be kept in groups, providing endless entertainment as you observe their interactions.

Beautiful and Hardy: With their smooth, skin adorned with shades from white to light brown with dark spots and stripes, Mourning Geckos are not only hardy but also visually striking as they change to be lighter or darker. Their adaptability makes them resistant to many common reptile ailments.

Educational Value: Perfect for classrooms and homes, Mourning Geckos offer a unique opportunity to learn about genetics, reproduction, and behavior. They are an excellent introduction to the world of reptiles for children and adults alike.

Care Requirements: Enclosure: A small, well-ventilated tank or terrarium with plenty of hiding spots and climbing branches. A 10-gallon tank is suitable for a small group.

Temperature and Humidity: Maintain a temperature range of 75-80°F with a humidity level of 60-80%. Regular misting and a shallow water dish will help achieve the desired humidity. Can be housed with dart frogs.

Diet: Feed a varied diet of small insects such as crickets and fruit flies, supplemented with occasional gecko diet, fruit puree and calcium powder to ensure optimal health.

Lighting: Mourning Geckos do not require special lighting like UVB lighting, but a low-intensity light cycle can help mimic their natural environment and regulate their activity. If the plants are happy, they're happy living amidst the plants.
