White Line Gecko
White lined geckos reach an adult length of around 9 to 10 inches, including their tail. They can live 10 to 20 years or so; however, they are relatively new to reptile hobbyists, so their life span is a bit uncertain. White lined geckos' bodies are brown, green or tan, and have a white stripe on each side of the head that converges on the back and runs down to the tail base which has broad white bands. They have specialized toe pads that allow them to effortlessly move along vertical surfaces.
White lined geckos tend to be less aggressive than their close relative, tokay geckos. They are pretty fast, somewhat delicate, and will bite if feeling threatened, so care is required when handling.
White lined geckos are sometimes called a white striped gecko (which may lead to confusion with other species), Indonesian skunk gecko or skunk gecko.
Housing White Lined Geckos
A 20-gallon tall terrarium is sufficient for a couple of white lined geckos, but bigger is better as white lined geckos are active lizards
