    Default Do leopard geckos make sounds?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    May seems like a silly question, but do leopard geckos make sounds? Mine is silent, but I read one reference someone made and wondered.
    Also, I'm new to this forum. I got my first leopard gecko in August and so she is only about 6.5 inches long. Her name is bisquit and I am a little obsessed with her. She is so cute to me and everyone seems to think I'm insane, but I think she likes me. I have a bazillion questions, but I'm starting with this one.
    Thanks for your help.

    Okay - forget the noise question. I just read the FAQ in this section. Silence is apparently golden.

    Actually, they will bark or squeak when annoyed or stressed. I have three and I've heard everyone of them make some sort of noise at least once.

    Yes they do. It is common for them to make noise if they are hurt or stressed. Other times they just make sounds to communicate, even though we cannot understand lol. If your gecko was wounded and something was getting into the wound it would squeal

    Fascio are the most vocal. Most will squeak as other have said.

    Zeus squeaks at me when I don't hold my hand out fast enough for him to walk on or when he hasn't got a good grip.

    Yuna doesn't really make sound, she likes to hiccup if I pick her up. Seems like she wants to squeak but doesn't want any sound to come out. Bahamut is the same way when held. However he's recently been known to hiss at himself for unknown reasons.

    I can honestly say I have heard my little girl Syrena (thus the name) make noise. When I first got her and put her back in her hide she made a noise like a cat and then another time, she was sitting all quiet under my sweater on my shoulder and I heard a soft sound like a mew. She did not appear stressed at the time at all. She was just enjoying the body heat.
