Golden Gecko

Lizards Home > Library > In The Wild
 

The Golden Gecko (Gekko ulikovskii) was originally from Vietnam. It has spread across the world via the exotic pet trade, but is not as common as some other species. They thrive in the tropical rainforests of the nation, and stay in very humid areas.

Female Golden Geckos will grow to an average of 8.5 inches, while males will reach lengths up to 14 inches. The males have more color, being a light brown to a bold golden-brown, while females are almost always a medium to dark mix of green and brown.

Golden Geckos, like many other geckos, eat a mixture of insects and fruits. The forests of Vietnam are rich in many different types of these foods, offering the Golden Gecko an excellent diet, but difficult to duplicate in captivity.
