The genus Eublepharis, also known as the leopard geckos, was first described by the British zoologist John Edward Gray in 1827. The etymology of their name is 'eu' = good (=true) |'blephar' = eyelid, and all have fully functional eyelids. Members of this genus are found in eastern and southwestern Asia where they are found in rocky grassland habitats. These geckos are sturdily built. Their tail is shorter than their snout-vent length and their body is covered with numerous wart-like bumps. The toes do not have adhesive lamellae. Eublepharis are crepuscular or nocturnal ground-dwellers. Included in this group is the popular pet gecko: the leopard gecko. A common misconception about Leopard Geckos is that they live in dry, arid deserts, but they are from the rocky grasslands in southwestern Asia. They avoid deserts.
