A black night leopard gecko is a color morph of the leopard gecko (Eublepharis macularius), a species of lizard that is native to the arid regions of Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, and parts of India. The black night morph is characterized by a dark, almost black coloration with white or yellow spots, stripes, or bands on its body and tail.
Leopard geckos are a popular choice for reptile enthusiasts as they are relatively easy to care for and have a docile temperament. They are also known for their unique ability to shed their tails when threatened or handled, which can later regrow.
Black night leopard geckos, like all leopard geckos, are nocturnal and feed on insects such as crickets, mealworms, and waxworms. They require a warm, dry environment with a basking spot that reaches around 90°F and a cool side that stays around 75°F. A proper diet, temperature, and housing are crucial for the health and well-being of any leopard gecko, including the black night morph.
