So, how about a reference foundation with some facts?
Where do Leopard Geckos come from?
Climate
Environment
Natural food sources and preferences
Breeding/nesting/hatching
What do wild/original leopard geckos look like?
Predators
When did they enter the "pet" trade
By what routes?
Status of wild populations, endangered, abundant etc.
Is there continued removal from the wild?
Where are the captive populations concentrated, US, England, Russia...etc.
Etcetera. (bet you didn't know I could spell that)

Look at the gecko at the top of the site when you click. It has scales all over like one of those pangolin ant-eaters. Incredible!

I think the average is 15-20. The record for males is 29 years and I think for females is 21 but I could be wrong.

not counting for leap years, at $0.10 a cricket and 2 crickets a day for 30years would be about $2190.00 and thats the starvation diet 4 crickets a day would be $4380.00 and thats not even mentioning the KWH of say non stop 120w heat bulb and 20w heat mat, 3.36 KWH a day, 10950 days, $0.12 per KWH and WHAMO another $4415.04. Then throw in stopping for a coffee and gass money twice a week while picking up the crickets, $3120 for the coffee ($1 eache) and who knows on the gass. $11915.00 not counting gass money and for leap years there would be 7.5 added days of expenses.
