No, that's my gecko's size, and she fits perfectly.
Adult Leopard Geckos do well in medium.
No, my one-year-old gecko, which is about 8" long (including the tail), takes up the entire inside.
Small. Medium was a little too small for our 20 gallon tank, but it all depends on the animal's size. In just a few months, our leopard gecko had outgrown the medium.

It hands down outperforms the tupperware tub. It was well worth the money, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good hide.
Our leopard gecko has been with us for approximately two years. We've purchased a variety of hides and caves, but he has never shown any interest in entering any of them. Instead, he chose to sleep on the reptile carpet that we'd laid across the bottom of his terrarium. He'd go to the corner, pull the corner up, and crawl underneath it. I never understood this because we could still see him through the glass, and I couldn't see how he could sleep in the "darkness. " Anyway, because the desert cave had a large opening, I noticed this cave went up and in and assumed it would provide him with a dark space. It's a huge hit with him! There will be no more scrounging beneath the carpet! I wish it was available in a desert theme, as this is a tropical reptile, but I'm thrilled with it! It's strong, easy to clean, and attractive.
My Juvenile Ball Python had quickly outgrown the Medium Lair, so this was an upgrade to the large rock Lair. It has enough room for enough substrate or sheet moss to be dampened in order to raise humidity levels. In terms of hides, it also provides an isolated section for privacy. Light dampening is a term used to describe the process of reducing light intensity. It's worth noting that this item is both hard and slightly heavy. If you're using this hide with a glass enclosure, make sure there's a substrate underneath and around it to protect the glass. While this product was probably created with geckos in mind, I chose it because royal pythons are nocturnal creatures. Sticky sheds are a common occurrence in the area. And, like any snake, it prefers to be in confined areas. It's too bad they don't make a jumbo because she'll outgrow this one, too.
It quickly became her favorite hiding place, and she adores it! Within a week of having it, she had a highly successful shed. br>It's surprising how heavy it is and how solid it feels. When I do deep cleans, I use a scrub brush to clean the outside and have no problems; the inside is smooth. I use wet sphagnum moss and a paper towel to line it. It's a good size, and I have a smaller leo who fits in there quite comfortably. She won't grow to the size of some responsibly bred geckos (mine was purchased from a pet store and abandoned by their owner). If you have a large gecko and want them to have more room, I recommend getting the large. br>Shipping was also extremely fast; given the pandemic, I was expecting to have to wait a long time, but it arrived in just a few days!.
This hide is a big hit with my adult leopard gecko. He may even enjoy it too much, as he rarely leaves it, hah. It's different from the rest of the hides I've purchased. Because of its design, it provides a lot more privacy and darkness. There's a ramp up into the hide, and your gecko will turn to the right to find a roomy little chamber to curl up in, rather than just a straight hole in the middle that lets in light. br>br>The downside is that the ramp leading up into the hide has this rough texture on it that is meant to look like moss but is actually very rough plast. I've had trouble in the past with my gecko turning his humid hides into just regular hides because he would kick everything out until it was empty, thereby defeating the purpose of making it a humid hide. br>br> When he goes in and out, I'm concerned that it will scratch his belly. My other issue is how easily the top comes off; I feel like it'll slide around a bit when my gecko starts to shed, as they rub up against the sides of their hides when shedding. br>br>Certainly not an issue for a baby, but an older gecko that drags its belly might have issues. br>br>My other issue is how easily the top comes off; I feel like it'll slide around a bit when my gecko actually starts to shed It would have been a good idea to use some weak magnets to keep it in place. But that's a minor quibble; overall, I'm very pleased with this hide.
My yearling leopard gecko absolutely adores this hide as his day/moist hide, and he spends almost all of his time in it during the bright daylight hours. The open top feature is extremely convenient. I used about an inch of eco earth and sprayed it down every two days. In addition, the hide is the ideal size for him. I ordered the medium, and despite not having the giant gene, he is a big boy. He enjoys climbing up to the roof and hanging out. He has excellent footing because it is textured. The seller was prompt and the product arrived in good condition. I strongly suggest it.
My female gecko loves it, and it's possibly the best thing I've bought so far. It's almost as if he doesn't want to come out. I usually take it out for a day or two to allow her to explore the rest of her terrarium. br>br>9-month-old Giant Leopard Gecko (51 grams)br>The medium is perfect for her because she has a little extra room.
THEY APPRECIATE IT! I ordered a medium and they fit perfectly, though I wish I had ordered a larger size so they could stretch out more, as my leos are now fully grown. They're in there the majority of the time, and they're perfect for a damp hide with sphagnum moss! Both have completed two successful sheds with no issues, indicating that it performs as expected.
