This article will explain how we do it, using methods we've developed at VMS over the last twenty-plus years. Some articles may differ from the methodology presented here, and some may view it as overly simplified.
The Leopard Gecko(Eublepharis macularis), has rightly become the most popular Gecko pet lizard in captivity. This is due to it's ease of maintenance, relatively large size, beautiful pattern and form and it is relatively slow.
The leopard gecko (Eublepharis macularius), native of Pakistan, is a gentle, hardy, long-lived animal that is in many ways the perfect reptile pet.
Unlike their distant cousins the tokay gecko, leopards seldom even attempt to bite.
Make sure a shallow dish with water is available at all times. Feeding consists of a main diet of crickets coated with a vitamin and calcium supplement. Some of the best supplements on the market are Rep-Cal (calcium and vitamin D) and Nekton-Rep (vitamin). At feeding time, use Rep-Cal as a major component for vitamin and mineral supplementation.
The leopard gecko, (Eublepharis macularius), is an ideal pet that takes up little space, has simple food requirements, comes in designer colors and patterns and can withstand the life dealt out by even the most absent-minded of keepers.
Books, care sheets and more
The scientific name for Leopard Geckos is Eublepharis Macularius, which means "true eye-lid" and "spotted" in Latin. They are members of the Gekkonidae-- or Gecko family. Geckos are the largest family of lizards in the world, with countless numbers of species ranging from the tropical, arboreal varieties to terrestrial desert dwellers. Leopard Geckos are originally from the arid, high desert mountains of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India. In their native habitat they live in the nooks and crannies of the large rock outcroppings surrounded by hard-packed clay soil and rocky dirt.
Advantages Hardy, small, attractive, docile, easy care requirements, interesting to observe.
Disadvantages Requires heat source, needs live insects, requires calcium/vitamin supplements, can drop tail.

Welcome to hkreptiles
Hkreptiles.com web site was built in 2004 for all reptiles lover around the world to share my passion especially for Leopard Geckos (Eublepharis Macularius).
I have been keeping leopard geckos since 2004 and since than I have managed to build my collection up to include Tangerine Carrot Tail, Super Hypo Tangerine Carrot Tail, Patternless Albino, Hybino, Blazing Blizzard, Tangerine Albino, and Hypos. And Albinos
There has been an explosion of interest to breed color and pattern mutations since 1991 when the first designer leopard geckos hatched. Any color and pattern you can think of is possible and many of these dominant recessives will be realized in the next few years. Breeding mutations with mutations accelerates the rate of variation.
