To breed leopard geckos you will need a few things to be successful

-First of course will be at least 1 male Leopard gecko and 1-4 female leopard geckos

-You will also need a 10 gallon tank to keep the male in

-Also a 20-30 gallon tank to keep the females in

-A heat mat to heat the cages

-For the female cage you will need a laying box. A plastic sterilite shoebox will work well with a hole cut in the top filled with damp peat moss.

Step 1: Getting the geckos to the proper size to breed

Leopard geckos should be around 50-75 grams to be able to breed. Some will be much larger, but this is the recommended minimum.
<p>what if yo want to stop after one season will that be possible </p>
I have a question.. I bought 2 tangerine geckos a few months back and they were smaller than my palm, now they r larger than my palm so I decided to find out their sex.. I have one male and one female I think.. I wanted to breed them but see where u instruct to leave the male in a separate tank.. I tried that and ms Alex got depressed so I put Danny back in... I have only observed once where he was on top of her ... Can he stay in the tank with her? These r my first reptiles and am trying to get all the knowledge I can on the species.. Thanx
<p>It is advised you separate them after mating.</p>
Could you answer my question for me I posted at top a few seconds ago thanks
<p>It is advised that you remove him after he's mated.</p>
Their breeding season is january through september and you have to fist cool of the female
Boi just got two leopard geckos male and female I was told there nine months but they seem small for that age my female has not ate yet but the male has jumped right into eating he actauLly at 9 Pin head size crickets she didn't eat any should I try and separate her into anothe tank or container to eat or due you think it's just stress from new environment and give her a few days to get use to ? If I do give it a few days and she doesn't eat what should I do I also will be going to a reptile show this Saturday and was wondering can I have two females done male in the same enclosure I have a 30 gallon tank and plants breed when age appropriate thank you
Could you add a bit more to determining the sex of the geckos by what temperature you incubate at?<br /> <br /> L<br />
<p>Incubation at 80-85 degrees will be females, while above 90 will give you males. This is not a guarantee, but It's something most breeders use.</p>
I just recently got started getting in leopard geckos. I started with my small male named gringo. he's a high yellow leo. then I got a female named aphrodite which is a lavender:) haha then I decided to get 3 more which came with a breeder rack. I was told 2 females and 1 male. I have my male named sobe which is a boldbell he's pretty big. then my female innova which us I think a red stripe, and I have a mack snow which I thought was a female but turned out to be a male ;( sobe found out for me and nipped him... then yesterday I just happened to get 2 more females for free XD Darla and peach. <br>I had no idea that innova was carrying eggs. I was wondering how long does it take for females to lay? :)<br>
This worked thx bruh and i have 25 babys!!! Im one busy 10 year old
Cool this is #1 on google<br>
I would strongly recommend AGAINST using vermiculite due to its likely contamination with deadly asbestos fibers.&nbsp; My partner of 24 years now has mesotheleoma&nbsp;caused&nbsp;to&nbsp;his exposure to vermiculite over 40 years ago.&nbsp; It is a deadly cancer that has no cure - there is only palliative care. He was diagnosed 11 months ago - typical life expectancy is 9 to about 15 months after&nbsp;diagnosis.&nbsp; So please use anything else but vermiculite.&nbsp;It is deadly stuff. &nbsp;Thank you.&nbsp;
<p>There is no asbestos in vermiculite. <b>Vermiculite itself does not contain asbestos; it was just the Libby, Montana mine which was contaminated because of the presence in the mountain of a secondary mineral called diopside.</b> (To read more about diopside, go to sites like <a href="http://www.galleries.com/Diopside" rel="nofollow"><strong>The Mineral Diopside</strong></a>.) This my have been a &quot;contamination&quot; issue 40 years ago but it is not a threat now.</p>
