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.
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
Their breeding season is january through september and you have to fist cool of the female
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>
Could you add a bit more to determining the sex of the geckos by what temperature you incubate at?<br /> <br /> L<br />
