The aim of this research was to explore the hematological value of Leopard Gecko (Eublepharis macularius). Total of 20 samples were examined, it consists of 10 males and 10 females, blood samples were taken from vena ventral abdominal and deposited into ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) tubes, fresh blood leaves little to make blood smear, total blood examination and total leukocyte and differential leukocyte count used standard manual method. The mean result of hematological value of leopard gecko in this research were white blood cell (WBC) (x103/mm3) 7.12 male, 8.09 female, Lymphocyte (%) 46.2 male, 38.4 female, Monocyte (%) 17 male, 17.3 female, Heterophil (%) 18.3 male, 21.8 female, Eosinophil (%) 10.8 male, 13.9 female, Basofil (%) 7.7 male, 8.6 female, red blood cell (RBC) (106/ mm3) 0.64 male, 0.65 female, Hemoglobin (Hgb) (g/dl) 8.95 male, 9.46 female, Hematocrit (%) 10.55 male and 9.26 female. In all parameters showed that hematology value of male gecko leopard was lower than female gecko except on two parameters which are hematocrit and lymphocyte which showed male gecko has the higher than females.
