What Leopard Gecko Breeders Should Know

Leopard Geckos are one of the few animals which you can mix and match colors and genes by breeding--exactly what leopard gecko breeders have been found exciting. They are pretty popular due to their arsenal of colors and patterns. These Leos' morphs are sought after by professional breeders all over the world as they aim to discover new types of morphs for Leopard Gecko. Plus, for pet traders, better morphs sell at a very much higher value.

It is relatively easy and simple to breed Leopard Geckos as long as you know some important factors related to it. To start it all off, if you plan to breed your leopard geckos, remember not to keep the male and the female gecko in one tank. This avoids too much mating that causes major stress and exhaustion to both geckos, especially the female. Stressed geckos have a tendency to have difficulty in getting pregnant or bearing weak babies. Only place your Geckos together when they are both ready to mate.

To top it all off, obviously there has to be a female and a male gecko. That is ultimately a matter of common sense. Plus it is better to breed adult leopard Geckos as the gender is hard to define at young ages. Some females may resemble a male gecko and same goes vice versa. The ideal age for Leopard Gecko breeding is at least one year of age. Breeding Leos younger than one year may cause complications usually causing a decrease in the general lifespan of the female. The female Leo should be at least 50 grams. It must never weigh less than that for when pregnancy progresses, the female Leo will shed some weight and nutrients are needed to maintain the healthiness of the eggs. This is another reason why potential breeding geckos should be as healthy as possible.

The mating is not exhibited too much. Usually if you grab a sight of the actual mating, you will notice the male kind of like grabbing the female's body through its neck. Commonly, the male and the female should be kept together for a few days to a week and no more. As the pregnancy progresses and the eggs start to develop, you will notice the female leopard gecko gaining more weight and you will be seeing the protrusion of the eggs as the skin on the female's belly starts to stretch. For its first time, a Leo will lay a single egg. Afterwards eggs will now come in pairs. Each season of mating and egg laying, the female releases eggs every 4 to 6 weeks. Female first timers will probably lay fewer eggs but it will improve on the next season.

Another important thing about breeding leopard geckos is to have a special area for the female to lay its eggs. It must be a separate laying box or a secured hide which is pretty spacious. It must be covered with a good amount of perlite that can be found in garden stores. Incubating the egg is important too. Once you follow these reminders, you will have more success in breeding leopard geckos.
