About This Leopard Gecko Guide
Why I wrote This Leopard Gecko Care Guide
About This Guide
This guide was created as a resource for other leopard gecko enthusiasts to use as a reference to husbandry. With the vast amount of leopard gecko resources online, and a number of them contradicting the other, I opted to put together my experience and knowledge of the species to create a reliable resource for the members of Herp Center and those visiting the website as a guest.
When the concept of this guide first hit me, I started out with just a few sections that elaborated more on the care sheet the site had been offering in the past. Once I began writing the new guide, additional sections arose and the size of the guide increased. At this current point in time, this guide contains over 50 pages of information and continues to grow as I write and expand upon new sections.
As a free resource, this guide should easily contain all of the information that any new enthusiast would require to keep and raise healthy leopard geckos, though I do make literature recommendations, since no online site should be your sole source of information.
About The Author
My Name is Richard Brooks and I have owned reptile and amphibians for as long as I can remember. I grew up in a household with 2 iguanas that predated my birth, so reptiles were something I was introduced to as an infant. I officially owned my first snake at age 6, which was a Common Garter Snake (Thamnophis sirtalis) and my personal passion for reptiles was born. Like most kids, I captured everything I could. I have kept numerous salamander species, frog and toad species, snakes and various invertebrates throughout my childhood.
I acquired my first leopard gecko in '96 or '97. I have owned and have bred leopard geckos ever since.
