Frog-eyed Gecko Care Sheet

Natural History

Frog-eyed geckos are a very interesting species for those that love ground dwelling geckos like the leopard gecko but appreciate a challenge. Unlike leopard geckos they are a fragile species that can't tolerate frequent handling. To offset the fact that they are a less interactive pet they bear unique scales and colouration setting them apart from other similarly shaped geckos.

They have a relatively broad head for their size with large eyes. They have been kept in captivity for quite a while but they aren't as commonly seen or bred due to the difficulty level versus other similar species. As such, they have a few colour and pattern morphs but most individual while display yellow/brown with dark stripes and spots.
