Adults can live for 10 years or more. Golden geckos reach an adult length of around 7-8 inches, though females tend to be a bit smaller than males.
A 20 gallon tall terrarium is sufficient for a golden gecko. Reptile bark or shredded coconut fiber bedding are great for the bottom of the enclosure. Temperature should be maintained at 75-90 ° F with a drop at nighttime to 70-75° F. Also maintain a moderate to high humidity level; aim for 60-80%.
Diet should consist almost entirely of crickets.
