Throughout life, I have always been told that the brighter the insect or reptile is, the more likely they to be poisonous. And for many cases this is true, from tiny Poison-Dart Frogs, to the Blue Malaysian Coral Snakes, with the striking blue colours of their body in contrast to their aggressively red coloured heads and tails. But does this continue over to geckos. Are leopard geckos poisonous?
The answer… NO.
Luckily for you, leopard geckos are not poisonous. Nor are they even venomous. So they are completely safe to have in your household, with no threat to your health or the health of friends and family.
