Yes, it’s that time of year again, and it grows colder and darker by the day, trapping you and your children inside. The question is, are you bored yet? Well if you are, and not already a reptile hobbyist, The Aquatic Critter’s reptile department has a suggestion that will make your dull, bleak winter months bright and interesting. A new reptile is the key to your wintertime blues, and the incredible Leopard Gecko is it!
Leopard Geckos are a beautiful, docile, clean, and inexpensive species of nocturnal lizard that originate from the dry, rocky regions of the Middle East. Today, finding a wild caught Leopard Gecko is a rarity as they are captive-bred by the hundreds of thousands in the United States annually. There is a wide range of color varieties now available, that are not seen in the wild specimens. The Aquatic Critter’s reptile department has an assortment of healthy, captive-bred animals available to you at costs ranging from $45 to $100. With the cost so low there has to be a catch, but be reassured there isn’t.
Housing and feeding prices for this fantastic animal are also phenomenally low, usually just above $100. This cost includes a 10 gallon aquarium with a screen lid, an under the tank heat pad, two thermometers, bedding, a hiding area complete with sphagnum moss, a water bowl, a book, and a calcium and vitamin supplement for the health of the animal.
Feeding the Leopard Gecko is a cinch! To make your life easy, The Aquatic Critter has a selection of food items for you to choose from including crickets of all sizes, mealworms, king mealworms, wax worms, and pink mice.
So, when the winter months get colder and darker, and you want a new and exciting reptile in your life remember the Leopard Gecko.
