πŸ–€FUN FACTS/DID YOU KNOW #7πŸ–€ **Not my images, possibly zoomed image**
πŸ’–LEOPARD GECKOS - MALE OR FEMALE?πŸ’– So for my last post of facts I wanted to show you how to sex your leos...it's not as difficult as people think!
πŸ’—Male Leopard Geckos (Image 1)
1. The back of their thighs have femoral pores. Both male and female leopard geckos will have femoral pores, but the male's pores will generally be larger.
2. The preanal pores are generally more noticeable and are more of a V-shape. Preanal pores allows the males to excrete a waxy substance. Both male and female leopard geckos have these pores, but the pores in females are so small that you will have trouble finding them, whereas males can easily be seen.
3. The base of their tail will have two hemipenal bumps/bulges. Only males will have these two bumps and once leopard geckos reach sexual maturity it is the easiest way to determine the gender.
πŸ’—Female Leopard Geckos (Image 2)
1. Females are identified by having a lack of male characteristics. So when sexing female leopard geckos you look for the following:
2. Their femoral pores are extremely tiny and almost appear to not exist. The femoral pores will run along the outside of the female gecko's back legs.
3. Their preanal pores are also very small and can be difficult to find. The preanal pores are located above (towards the gecko's head) the vent and are usually in a V-shape.
4. The base of their tail lacks hemipenal bumps/bulges. This is generally the best indication you have a female leopard gecko.
DID YOU KNOW
πŸ’—When leopard geckos are incubating in their eggs, the temperature of the environment can influence their gender.
πŸ’—(Mostly Females) Incubation temperature of a constant 79-81Β°F for the first 3 weeks of incubation and then after these 3 weeks temperatures are then increased to 88-90Β°F.
πŸ’—(Mostly Males) Incubation temperatures is a constant 88-91Β°F for the entire incubation period.
πŸ’—(Both Males and Females) Incubation temperature is a constant 85-87Β°F for the entire incubation period.
πŸ’—Eggs incubateΒ 35 to 89 daysΒ depending upon the incubation temperature!! #thegecko #geckosex #geckofemale #geckomale #maleorfemale #malegecko #femalegecko #leogecko

πŸ–€FUN FACTS/DID YOU KNOW #5πŸ–€
πŸ’–THE LEOPARD GECKO TONGUE & TEETH!πŸ’–
πŸ’—Leopard geckos have approximately 100 tiny teeth! (You can see some of them in this photo of Bailey) πŸ’—DID YOU KNOW Leopard geckos are polyphyodonts and are able to replace each of their 100 teeth every 3 to 4 months!!! Next to the full grown tooth there is a small replacement tooth developing from theΒ odontogenicΒ stem cellΒ in theΒ dental lamina.
πŸ’—Their teeth are not really designed to break down their prey but more to grip hold of it so the prey doesnt escape!
πŸ’—The tongue of a leo has a special function. You may notice they flick their tongues out when they are somewhere different. This is because they have something called the Jacobson’s Organ. This allows them to pick up scents with their tongue...
πŸ’—The science behind the 'tongue flick'...after each tongue flick, microscopic particles from the environment/atmosphere collects on the tongue. The tongue then goes to the upper part of the mouth which connects it to a sensory part of the reptile brain. This area is also called theΒ Jacobson’s organΒ or theΒ vomeronasal organ. πŸ’—The vemeronasal organ has the ability to decipher these particles in order to make the reptile β€˜understand’ its environment a little better!! Pretty cool hey!?
πŸ’—This gives them a very acute sense of smell. They can tell with their ears and smell when you enter the room (this explains why Bailey always comes out when I go in my room) and will know if a stranger with a different sound and scent comes along!!
πŸ’—Luckily I have never been bitten by a leopard gecko but I'm curious if you can feel their teeth if they bite you?πŸ€”πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

πŸ–€FUN FACTS/DID YOU KNOW #4πŸ–€
πŸ’–THE LEOPARD GECKO EARπŸ’–(sorry about the low quality photo it was an old pic which shows all the way through Bailey's head so you can see)!!
πŸ’—Leopard geckos have such unusual ears! πŸ’—Their ears are the openings on either side of their head.
πŸ’—Even though they do not look sophisticated, leopard geckos have very sensitive ears!!
πŸ’—Their ear canal goes straight through their tiny little skulls β€” (if you hold your leo up to the light you can basically see right through)! You can actually see their ear drum too! A tympanic membrane covers and protects it. πŸ’—They use their ears to help listen out and locate their prey.
πŸ’—Leo's ears have auditory (the sense of hearing) and vestibular (sense of balance) functions. πŸ’—DID YOU KNOW that the leo sheds part of the ear?? The tympanic membrane which is generally visible and covered with thin transparent skin is shed when Leo's shed their old skin (a process called ecdysis)!
πŸ’—In many lizards the external ear is either absent or greatly reduced (in geckos and monitors) and most species have a superficial tympanum (an external hearing structure in animals such asΒ mammals,Β birds, someΒ reptiles, someΒ amphibiansΒ and someΒ insects).

πŸ–€FUN FACTS/DID YOU KNOW #3πŸ–€....
πŸ’–THE LEOPARD GECKO TAILπŸ’–
πŸ’—Their tails are one of the most fascinating features of the leopard gecko.
πŸ’—When food is scarce for Leopard geckos in the wild, they can rely on their ability to store excess fat in their tails. πŸ’—Leopard geckos have a tail that can detach if they feel threatened or are grabbed by a predator, giving them time to escape (this can also happen in captivity if they are suddenly spooked by something, the first thing to do is not to panic, just keep the tank clean, paper towel is best as you change this often to prevent infection). Remove moss as well as you don't want that going into the wound. Use damp paper towel in their moist hide.
πŸ’—DID YOU KNOW that the technical term for the ability to drop the tail is called causal autotomy. In most cases the breakage occurs only when the tail has been grasped with sufficient force, however leopard geckos can perform true autotomy, detaching the tail themselves when they feel they're in life threatening situations. πŸ’—Geckos will grow their tails back, but it normally doesnt look the same as the first one.
πŸ’—The tail will take 65 days to grow back.
πŸ’–Their tails are also used when hunting...they will stalk their prey somewhat like an actual leopard will, moving their tail, and then striking at their prey (normally with fantastic accuracy)! Their tail wiggle is very cool to see...watch your leo hunt and you may see them do it too!
πŸ’—Geckos have a defensive response where they will lower their body while keeping their head high to look at the source of the threat. They then point their tail in the air and slowly wag it. This could be in response to a predator, another gecko that they are wary of, or even you if you surprised them or they aren’t used to you yet. If they do this don't worry, just stay quiet and give your leo a chance to calm down and realise you aren't a threat. Don't attempt to pick them up if they are showing the signs of stress as they could bite in this situation or potentially drop their tail.

πŸ–€FUN FACTS/DID YOU KNOW #2πŸ–€.....πŸ’–THE LEOPARD GECKO EYE AND THE SPECIES NAME (their name is slightly related to the eye as well)!!!πŸ’–
πŸ’—Many geckos lack eyelids, but not Leopard Geckos! They can even blink and close their eyes while sleeping. πŸ’—Leopard geckos were first described as a species byΒ zoologistΒ Edward Blythin in 1854 asΒ Eublepharis macularius.
πŸ’—TheΒ first wordΒ EublepharisΒ is a combination of the Greek words Eu (good), andΒ blepharΒ (eyelid), as havingΒ eyelidsΒ is one of the main characteristics that make these different from other geckos. πŸ’—TheΒ second word,Β macularius, comes from theΒ Latin wordΒ maculaΒ meaning "spot" or "blemish", referring to the animal's natural spotted markings.
πŸ’—DID YOU KNOW Leopard geckos can see better than other gecko species. Their vision is comparable to that of a cat!

πŸ’–My Leo's set upπŸ’– #tbt an old set up post. I wanted to show you all how I have personally set up my gecko's tanks. This is a very basic guide to my layout which has worked for Bailey for nearly 5 years now. Please do your own research when getting any reptiles as they are all different, but here's my personal set up for my leo-geckosπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’ž
1πŸ’–WARM HIDE Placed directly above heat mat. Temperature kept anywhere between 29-32Β°C (Heat mat covers 1/3 of viv floor, stuck under tank as it's a glass viv) 2πŸ’–MOIST HIDE Placed half over heat mat. I put spme Sphagnum moss in which is dampened/sprayed every day, ready for when gecko needs it for shedding. People can also use damp paper towels etc. 3πŸ’–COOL HIDE Placed off of heat mat completely (on opposite side). Temperature should be between 23-27Β°C 4πŸ’–WATER DISH Water replaced daily/every other day 5πŸ’–FOOD DISH (escape proof for insects) I keep approx. 10 x mealworms in here in case gecko gets hungry. Otherwise tong feed a variety of insects once every 2-3 days (for adult gecko) 6πŸ’–CALCIUM DISH I put 2/3rd's calcium with D3 and 1/3rd vitamins/minerals (Gecko can self regulate when needed) 7πŸ’–SUBSTRATE I personally don't use loose substrate. So Bailey has non-adhesive lino and Ditto has tile cut to size. Both keep heat lovely on warm side. Both textured as well. 8πŸ’–DECORATIONS Branches/fake plants etc. from pet stores, to brighten up tank and make it more interesting for gecko 9πŸ’–THERMOSTAT Place probe on warm side. Keeps the heat mat at a constant temperature, definitely needed to prevent burns to your gecko
THERMOMETER Place probe on warm side (I keep it right next to the Thermostat probe). Allows you to read the accurate temperaure of the warm/cool side
