Etekcity Lasergrip 774 Non-contact Digital Laser Infrared Thermometer Temperature Gun

This is the best digital laser temperature gun available. It is currently on lightning deal for $12.79, so you have to act quick. Temperature guns are great for testing the temperature of your terrarium floor. Remember with leopard geckos, they require belly heat in order to digest food properly.
