 Leo or striped gecko make noise?

i have narrowed the noise to 2 of my geckos. i have a striped gecko and a leo gecko.

the striped gecko makes a screem like noise when i poke him but thats the most iv noticed. the leo gecko is a female and the striped gecko is a male.
the noise is almost like a low cat "meow". the noise is hard to explain but i know its comeing from one of the 2 geckos.

the noise is at night. i sleep in same room as these geckos and hear it often. last night was the most noise its ever made.

Hey, First off DON’T poke you pets how would you like it if some huge thing came and poked you?!?, leoaprd geckos only hiss when scared... it is your slriped gecko making this noise. Also DO NOT house these two different lizards together..... as they may fight, one may have pairsites that wont harm it but will kill the other the leoaprd gecko is from a desert habitata the striped gecko most likely isnt.

Leopard Geckos do make noise! I only have one Leopard Gecko and nothing else in the room with my besids a fish and occassionally he’ll make a noise that sounds like a kitten crying. But your other gecko could also be making a noise. It’s very possible that your Leopard Gecko made the sound though. Hope this helps!

I agree with leo keeper...do not POKE your animals....It’s a bad habit to get into, lol...Leos are fragile, just like all other reptiles. What may seem like a light, soft, gentle touch (or poke as the case may be) to you might be quite harsh and uncomfortable for them~~~remember that.

maybe "poke" wasnt the best term i should have used... what i ment by poke was to touch gently to get a reaction, usualy movement or a noise. i only do this "poke" for when i am showing guest and the gecko is hiding (his cage is very well planted). i dont poke my leo altho i do hold her on rare ocasions.
i did not enjoy being treated like a beginner, iv kept reptiles for many years and i prefer you didnt assume im some 10 year old poking my pets.

thank you very much and the noise was like a kitten crying. for a long while i thought the noise was my cat meowing at the edge of my door at night.

Lillie only makes noise when she’s upset, if I hold her too long, she makes a little "nrp!" sound- a croak, a grunt? Hard to describe, but it means "put me down."

i know what she meant by poked. when i put my hand down to get lizzy, i kinda touch her tail to see if she runs away, i guess that means she dont wanna be messed with, and shell turn around and jump and make a weird hissing noise... like a chirp but not like a "im hurt" chirp. like a LEAVE ME ALONE chirp... if that makes sence? lol
