Leopard Gecko: Eublepharis macularius

photos Hester Burch

Leopard geckos are indigenous to Pakistan and India. They are nocturnal. In the wild it would live in semiarid or arid environments (dry). They can live 15 to 20 years. Burt is his name. He is about 13 years old (in 2012). He was a former classroom pet at Hollywood Elementary School and has lived at the Elms since about 2006. If its tail was to break off (autotomize), it would grow a new one. Amazing!
