Mourning geckos are fascinating species that are extremely unique. On top of that, they’re a pleasure to own and quite fun to watch!
The mourning gecko (Lepidodactylus lugubris) is a fascinating reptile species with a unique defining trait. These lizards are parthenogenetic, which means that the females reproduce asexually without males. It’s an exciting process that results in tiny little clones! Because reproduction only requires egg-laying, a vast majority of mourning geckos are females. Males do exist, but they’re rare and usually infertile.
Another exciting thing about these lizards is that they can modify their color. Firing up or down allows them to adjust to their surroundings. As a result, the same gecko may appear lighter or darker at different times during the day. Mourning gecko care is relatively easy compared to other species. Undemanding and adaptable, these pet lizards are pretty forgiving and don’t require precise environmental conditions to thrive.
Expert Tip: An important thing to remember when it comes to mourning gecko care is that these reptiles need to eat most days of the week. Generally, the go-to diet plan is plant-based foods twice a week and protein-based foods three times a week. For the remaining two days, fast the lizards for healthy digestion.

But unlike other geckos, they do have eyelids. Leopard geckos are not prone to biting and are usually slow-moving. They are known to be very vocal, especially when they are hungry, and they make chirps and squeaks.
