Getting an exotic pet such as a gecko might seem like a great idea, but before buying a gecko ensure that you are prepared to commit your time, money and effort into raising a healthy, happy gecko.
Geckos can live up to 15-20 years — that is a huge commitment. Will you be off to university in a few years? Are you likely to move house? Will you want children in the future? Think about everything and then think if you'll still be as committed to gecko ownership as the initial enthusiasm you feel now.
