I completely disagree. I have a friend of mine that has ~100 of them; they're
one of the better lizards to aquire as a beginner. I own 2 myself. Leopard
geckos are very hardy, low maintenance, inexpensive, AND DOCILE animals. On the
other hand, I've also had iguanas; they're probably less predictable than
Eublepharis macularius, however my 6 footer was VERY nice.
