(leopardgecko)

Leopardgeckoes are very popular pets. They are found in many colormorphs and the different albinos are seen at any show. Their origin is very hard if not impossible to find out, but within the last years there are new wild caught animals that have popped up inside the hobby. They are still rare, but some has been distribuated from especially Tjekkia under different names and subspecies. If these names are correct or not is a question, but they are different from the usual ones, and we have kept these names.

One of these is Eublepahis macularius montanus. They are very light colored and fairly slim compared to normal ones. Adult animals have a weight at about 28-32g and males are somewhat bigger than the females. Juveniles grow rapidly on a diet of coackroaches, crickets and melworms and can be mature in 1 year.

They are active both night and day, and in the early Spring they often warm themselves under the spotlight. We hibernate them from November to February at about 15*C and the copulations takes place shortly after. 1-2 eggs are deposited in a box filled with a mixture of kokushumus and sand, and they are hatched at a temperature of 26-30*C
