Couple days ago I caught my levis pair doing it.. :oops:
It's their first time... very nice, they seem to enjoy it...
Not much movement, nor sound, only the tail wiggles... :P

Here're some pics:

Yeah - sure nice Pron ;) - do you have the weight for them? The female seems quite large in comparison to the male :)

What great pics.

Golly that male is small compared to the female, but really nice colouring. How old is the male & the female?

Thanks all for the comments!

Ken, I did cool them for about 4 weeks.

The female was doing fine after the cooling period, but the male seems to loose some weight.
They were kept separately before & I let the male to gain weight before I put them together.
But, yeah the male is much smaller than the female huh?! :?
I just weigh them again today, the Female is 32gr & the Male is only 14 gr.
Is that normal?
The male was hatched 09/2004, the female 06/2003.
This is my first time breeding levis, so good advice is really appreciated...

Al the stock that your male came from seems to produce small males. I have a six year old male that weighs 15-17 grams. He should do fine.

Thankfully his small size didn't stop him having a bit of fun with his missus!!!! Did you give him a stepladder Al? She's a big girl!!!

Sarah, lol.. I know, I didn't realize he was so much smaller before, and now the female is getting rounder and rounder... I think she's pregnant :D

Hey Art, how're you?
Glad to know the male is normal that size. Yea, the male seems healthy, feisty little guy!
I have more questions about them.
Where does the female usually lay the eggs? The substrate of the tank is 4"-5" sand and I have a small container in the tank with damp moss in it.
Is perlite okay for the incubation substrate? and how about incubating temp?
I'll probably call you soon, I'm selling all of my BP now... :roll:

I'll keep you guys updated.
Thanks!

Hey Dude, where do you live? I live in the bay area too, Santa Cruz. I'm also trying to breed some levis levis for the first time, but I think my male is too small. Nice geckos you got there and that female is huge!!!!!!!
