  1. Another great scoop guys! We really enjoy listening to them just before we have our lunch! We have 2 questions this week:

    1. – Chelsea would like to know – how long do geckos live for? And:

    2 – Macklin would like to know – how many species of geckos are there?

    Keep up the good work!

    From 1/2L and Mr. Lavars.

    • Hi
      The common house gecko lives up to 5-10 years.

      As of 2012 about 1,490 have been recognised.

      Kind regards Will.
