Do Leopard Geckos make good pets?

Yes! They make excellent pets for beginners and more experienced owners alike. I have found them to be amazing pets to watch and to learn from, each with their own personality. 

They are an easy species to feed and keep and make amazing display animals in a naturalistic arid environment. 

I have found them to be easily held even by small children as they are fairly sized, not too big, or too small as adults. 

Depending on the personality of your gecko they may like being handled, so not so much. You can work on this with lots of handling over time. 

Just be gentle with them and allow the gecko to dictate how long they will be handled and how they interact with you. My geckos all love climbing up t-shirts to get to your neck and find a hot spot to sit at. They will sit there happily for nearly an hour without moving around too much
