I used to have a leopard gecko, I thought it was fairly easy to take care of and not overly expensive. Demanding? I didn't think so. But I did not hold mine enough when I first got it, so it was not at all friendly and holdable. It was cool to watch though. It would shed it`s skin a lot etc. But I finally found it a new home because no matter how careful you are, every once in awhile crickets would find a way to escape and I hated it. Good luck in your decision.

did you only feed it crickets? silly question do they bite? should you just keep holding them to get them comfortable?
