  • Seeing it's the school's gecko you should ask the teacher or whoever is normally responsible for it.

  • I am sure she will tell me tomorrow. (of course) But I was excited and a little hesitant and thought another mom might be able to give me an idea of what it would be like.

  • Will it need a heat lamp?

  • it will need a uvb light on the top of its tank. i am sure they will send it with one. but uvb won't come thru the glass. I am sure if you googled this you've read about how it keeps them from getting bone disease and depending on where you live a heat lamp.
