    Question i need help with leo breeding

    I was considering breeding leos and was wondering if it was ok to put the male into the females tank during breeding season if the tank is large enough. i wasn't sure because the male wouldn't be used to the other tank. also, any breeding advice is welcome!!!!!!!!!!!!

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: i need help with leo breeding

    There are a ton of different methods for breeding leopard geckos. Almost all of them work-including leaving the male in with the female for the entire season.

    I personally would separate out the male leopard gecko periodically (at least every other week) to allow the female a chance to 'rest'. Because I had so many females I would rotate my breeder males every two days to a different female. I learned fast not to use my hands moving breeder males between enclosures during breeding season: they can give you a nice set of bloody 'V' teeth marks on your hand.

    At one point I had hundreds of leopard geckos. I had no luck group housing females hatched together above sub-adult age: They would invariably injure each other-sometimes critically-there was no re-homing a seriously injured leopard gecko. Every one had to have their own bin.

    Crypto erased my entire reptile collection at one point (came in on a Leopard gecko that was asymptomatic for 16 months). I have never kept Leopard geckos again-if I did-I would get every one PCR tested-especially if I was planning on breeding.

    Best of luck!
