So i bought a trio of 3 lygos around 9 months ago, it was sold to me as 1.2, which made sense as there was one blue one, 2 green ones, and dominant female was easy to tell due sacks in the throat that we're more distinctive.



the unfortunate happened in odd circumstances and the blue male died while being oddly stuck with subdominant female one in a bamboo tube (which made no sense as its not like it was hard to get out of it and surface should be easy to climb)

Well now the 2 "female" ones have started mating which makes no sense at all, even tho my sister might not be an reptile expert i doubt she can misunderstand 2 gecko's on top of each other "humping" :biggrin:

the one with sacks at throat is the one who's on top, so uhm... is it possible they are lesbians or something or am i 100% certainly holding an 1.1?

Heres pics of them both incase someones good at sexing these

Looks like two girls but I'm not the best at sexing this sp. Could be the bigger female is pulling dominance tactics with the smaller. That will happen.

Is it possible for you to get clearer pictures showing the whole underside of each gecko? I have a hunch one of your supposed females is actually a male, but it is hard to tell from the pictures posted.
