    Hey Guys,

    I got two Leopard geckos last month and have decided to join the site because I have found this place to be a wealth of good information and advice.

    Here are my Leos 'Mickey and Mallory', the breeder said they were about 3 months old

    Welcome aboard to you, Micky, and Mallory! What a nice pair!

    By some chance could Mallory be gravid?

    Thanks,

    Hopefully Mallory isn't gravid because she's only 32 grams. she is a little overweight though (tail a bit bigger than head) so she is going on a diet. I am also 90% sure Mickey is a male so I will be separating them soon and hopefully breeding them when they're over a year old.

    You're welcome!

    How does Mallory's belly look? When pairs are housed together, there's a chance that Mallory could become gravid before she's mature if Mickey's been a bit "frisky". One rule of thumb is to wait till a female is about 18 mo prior to breeding.

    Sexing Leopard Geckos -- Leopard geckos become sexable at about 6 months old. Males can be distinguished from females by a distinct /\-shaped row of pores above the vent and by two hemipenal bulges below the vent. To see their vents, potential male pores, and hemipenal bulges gently press their bodies up against the glass. They'll squirm if you try to turn them over.
