Default Leopard Gecko

Completely new to lizards, have only kept snakes and havent handled or kept any lizard of any sort before.

What are leopard geckos like, i hear they are quite a hardy species, easy to care for and clean. What are they like at handling, how do you handle them, do they bite. Dont know anything about them only care sheets that all vary on info so any help from Leo keepers would be very much appreciated.

Looking at getting 1 from Rodbaston as long as i have all set up first.
