    Smile Crested Geckos Egg Laying Questions?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    To All May concern:

    How often do Crested Geckos lay eggs? Can Crested Geckos lay eggs all year long? How many eggs can 1 female lay in there lifetime? The reason I am asking these Crested Geckos questions is I just got my first clutch of eggs and I am new to breeding Crested Geckos.

    Thank You,

    From:

    Q: How often do Crested Geckos lay eggs?
    A: When they start laying a new clutch of 2 eggs is laid every 3-5 weeks, Mine are quite punctual about the 3 week mark. But it varis between females.

    Q: Can Crested Geckos lay eggs all year long?
    A: Yes but it is a sure way of killing them. Egglaying is very taxing for the female and you should not let her lay more than 5-7 clutches in a season. Then remove her from the male and lower the temperature to turn her off.

    Q: How many eggs can 1 female lay in there lifetime?
    A: It depends, if you let her lay a lot of clutches the first seasons she will burn out quicker then if you let her lay fewer, then she will be reproductively active for more years. An exact number is hard to give.

    I suggest you get one of the Crested gecko books available, in there you will find answers to most if not all of your questions.
