Leopard Gecko Breeder
Leopard gecko breeders are a great place to start. Some breeders have websites with lots of information about their breeding plans and setup. A good leopard gecko breeder will have thorough knowledge of the leopard gecko’s genetics and parents, they should confirm that the leopard gecko is healthy and also be able to provide you with lots of up-to-date photos and videos.
At DJL Exotics we handle our leopard geckos daily so they are used to being handled which is great if you are new to leopard gecko keeping. A breeder who is licensed is also a great option as they have had to go through rigorous criteria to achieve the certification.
Exotic Pet Shop
Your local exotic pet shop is licensed to sell reptiles so this is a great start when looking for a leopard gecko for sale. Look for an exotic pet shop that breeds its leopard geckos or works closely with a breeder with expertise. You should still be able to find out about the morphs or the leopard gecko and their hatch date.
