• <h4 class="dechead">On One Hand: Pros of Having a Gecko as a Pet

    For those seeking an unusual and exotic pet that doesn't take up a lot of space a gecko may be a good choice. Once their habitat is properly set up, they can be relatively easy to care for on a day-to- day basis. They don't make large messes. They typically don't seek regular interaction, making them less time-consuming than a dog, cat or hamster.

    On the Other: Cons of Having a Gecko as a Pet

    Each species of gecko has its own habitat and dietary requirements. The initial set-up for a gecko takes a great deal of knowledge and can be expensive. They need medical care by a veterinarian who specializes in reptile medicine, which can be more expensive than the average pet. They eat bugs, which may be a drawback for some owners.

    Bottom Line

    Determining if a gecko is a good pet depends on what you are seeking in a pet and if you are able to care for it properly. If you are seeking the challenge of caring for a gecko and find geckos beautiful and fascinating, then a gecko may be a good pet for you. If, however, you are not able to provide the right habitat or are squeamish about insects, they may not make a good pet for you.
