    Default daytime sleep: eyes open or closed?

    Just a simple question:
    when your grcko is sleeping, during the day, are its eyes opened or closed?
    Cause mine's eyes are open!

    They don't have eyelids! They just narrow their pupil to a slit and their eyes kinda sink into their head a bit.

    I didn't know this either when I was new to geckos. There's lots of weird stuff you'll find out about the little guys.
