    Question AFT Male and Female in one terrarium? Planning of breeding


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello,

    I am planing to start breed of African Fat Tailed Gecko. First i want to buy two geckos, female and male. I found one breeder which have two, one year old AFT for sell (in my country is not easy to get AFT). In this moment i have two terrariums, which i can prepare for them. Can I put them togeather in one terrarium, 80cm (lenght)X30cm(Width)X30cm(Height), or better way is separate them? I am afraid about female, will male not tired her? Is better to keep them separate, and meting they only for copulation in mating period?

    Sorry for my weak english.

    Greetings, Hubert

    Welcome to GU! There are different opinions about this. I have found AFT's not to be as aggressive with each other as some other gecko species. When I was breeding them I kept my male and females together all year and never had a problem.

    Welcome to Geckos Unlimited, Hubert! It's good to have you on board.

    I've never kept AFTs.
