Leopard Gecko Rack Housing

Leopard Gecko Rack Housing is done by both hobbiest as well as breeders. Rack systems are a simple and convenient way to house leopard geckos in a confined space without compromising their care. If this is the first you are hearing of using a rack system for housing your leopard geckos, I invite you to get comfortable and read this page through its entirety.

Rack systems can be purchased in all shapes and sizes and are designed to accomodate everything from leopard geckos to some of the larger snake species. Their simple designs and space saving attribute make them extremely favorable to many.

Racks are often used by breeders because they can be easily maintained, heated, and help to group or centralize the geckos within a breeding colony.

When people think of rack systems, they often believe that the animal housed within are being treated sub par. Some even believe that racks do not provide enough living space for the animal being housed within it. This is simply not the case, though it would depend on the person or company and their rack setup.

There are a number of companies now that produce racks, and there are also private builders who sell online as well. If you have the money to spend, because racks do not come "cheap", by all means purchase one from an online source that you have researched.

If you are just a simple hobbiest who would like to expand their collection, but can't afford the cost of a professional rack system, why not build one! Racks are not only simple in design, but they are extremely simple to build as well. There are a number of different methods for building racks, and each will require the use of specific tools in order to get the desired results. We will outline a few different techniques for building rack systems. Some of these design are extremely inexpensive to create and others will require some time and additional funding.
