Power Outage Gecko Care

In light of hurricane ravaged East Coast, we thought we would give some tips on power outage gecko care.  Power outages are common for those having to deal with bad weather.   It is easier to take care of your gecko pet during power outages than you think.  Your leopard gecko requires warmth to function normally and to digest food.  There are heat packs you can purchase that will keep your leopard gecko warm for 2-3 days straight.

Power Outage Gecko Care – UniHeat Shipping Warmer

UniHeat Shipping Warmer is the same heat packs we use when shipping our leopard geckos.  They come in 40-hour and 72-hour versions.  Since we do FedEx Priority Overnight shipping, we mostly use the 40-hour heat packs.  But if you anticipate to be out of power for more than a day or two, you should get the 72-hour version.

Leopard Gecko Won’t Breed – Ovulation cycles
