Leopard Gecko

The Leopard Gecko is the only gecko to have movable eyelids. Leopard geckos are nocturnal creatures, spending most of their days hiding under rocks and becoming more active once the sun goes down, 

These geckos have 100 teeth that are replaced every three to four months. In the wild, the leopard gecko will live to be an average of 15 years old, while in captivity it can live to be 20-25 years old.
