My geckos fake rock set-ups!

I made a fake rock set-up for my geckos some months ago out of polystyrene, grout, PVA and sand and thought I'd share a few pics!

Jacks is on the left and the girls is on the right

Jack has a very serious expression on his face in that last shot!

Nice set-up! I love reptiles, but don't know much about caring for them. Are geckos hard to care for?

This species of gecko (Leopard Geckos) are one of the easiest species to care for as they are very robust and relatively laid back.

They require vitamin and mineral supplimentation every other feeding, housed in an appropriate enclosure with an appropraite temperature range so are more specialised than mammals but wouldn't say particularly hard to care for, as long as the owners fully aware of their specific needs!
