moorish gecko


Crocodile Gecko (Tarentola mauritanica)

  • Found in semi-arid environments within the Mediterranean
  • Carnivorous species 
  • Also known as a Moorish Gecko
  • A nervous species, not the best to handle. They are also hyperactive and difficult to handle
  • Male Crocodile geckos are very aggressive and territorial when it comes to another male, and therefore they should be kept separately
  • Male Crocodile geckos will also emit squeaks when defending their territory. This may be a warning sign that you have 2 males and not a true pair
