    Question Do they HAVE to be bred more than once?

    Once crested geckos are bred and the female produces her eggs can they be seperated and not be put together again for the rest of the season and be fine?

    Separating breeding animals is not only a good option, I think it's very important to keep females which have produced several clutches healthy. I have already kept females separate for months, even six months in extreme cases when they were very prolific. It does help them a lot to recover, and it may happen you have 2-3 clutches even after they are separated (the last clutch is often infertile in that case, still it takes energy and calcium from the said female). Providing them a healthy diet is also very important, along with a sufficient calcium intake.

    Crested Geckos retain sperm and use that supply to fertilize their eggs over their term. There is no need to keep a male in the enclosure with the female. Once a successful copulation has been observed the male is no longer needed.
