An insight into how long do geckos live suggests that the average life span of geckos is highly dependent on the care that they are accorded. With their mature body sizes ranging from 1.6 cm to about 60cm for the larger full-grown varieties, geckos are known to inhabit regions that are warm, but they also lack a winking capability. Their eyes are equipped with a visual lens which attains a maximum size with lack of light.
With an advanced form of communication that relies on chirpings for communication and socialization, it is estimated that there are more than 1500 varieties of geckos in existence globally. Some of the geckos are known to shed off their tails during danger times while other have specially adapted toes that allows them to scale vertical and smooth walls. Most of the geckos residing in warm regions share residencies with humans and are known to have an important role of preying on insects, some of them harmful such as the mosquitoes.
The life expectancy of this type of lizards is dependent on a number of different factors and notably among them the diet they feed on and care. In selecting the gecko to be tame in the place of a pet, it is important that the right variety be selected to allow for a provision of the requisite environment suitable for a prolonged life span.
Providing for near natural habitats for the residence of the pet gecko has the important aspect of lowering stress levels and reduction of anxiety, which allows them to live healthy and comparatively longer. Disease and the genetic composition of geckos determines how well the geckos can survive in their environments, together with how well the body resists common illnesses and thus a major determinant of how long the gecko lives.
The living place of the gecko should be kept clean and dry, alongside providing warm temperatures similar to those in their natural places of residences. Such ideal habitats must also provide a place to escape as a hideout when dangers threaten its life, lack of which will increase stress levels making the gecko to succumb.
