Hi. I run a small rescue/shelter for exotics in SE Texas. I mostly took in birds and mammals until a few years ago when I started rehabbing lizards. I have had really good success with desert and semi desert species.

I kept a leo for awhile, and because he was such a great boy about being handled, I gave him to a friend who works in an educational facility. He was healthy. I kept a strip uv light on his cage, and provided a basking light, log, hides, bowl of calcium, moss filled shedding box, and of course prey.

A lady just surrendered a 3 year old golden gecko today with only three feet. The gecko had a mishap as a baby and lost just the foot on one front leg. Other than that, he seems healthy. So, how are these geckos different from the leos? Do they need more moisture, different temps, less or more light or UV?
