    Hello everyone, newbie here. I really interested to know about gecko and I have zero knowledge about this reptile. While searching some information about gecko, I stumble upon this forum. So it would be great for me to sign up and participate within the community.


    Due to my busy lifestyle, I guess the gecko would be great as a pet at home, I mean as far as I concern it is easy to maintain.

    Hi there, and welcome! There are many different kinds of geckos, but I am assuming that you would want one that is easy to care for.

    Some are active during the day, and some only at night. Do you have a preference? Also, leopard geckos are a desert-type reptile and need higher temperatures, and cresties and gargoyles are more tropical and need more humidity. What type of climate do you live in?

    Some are small, some get pretty large; how much space do you want to provide for a tank?

    Also, some are more handleable (in general) than others. Are you looking for interactive, or is a display animal OK with you?

    Some eat insects, and some can do fine on just a powdered gecko diet. Let us know what your preferences would be.

    Hi thank you for the warm welcome. It might be before I go to bed, maybe some checking and seeing the geckos. By the way, let me get some coffee and read some stuff here first. Thanks again
