    Hi Ken, I don't do anything different to my levis. There is little point cooling juvies as its just a waste of good growing time.

    Might as well finish off this old post.

    What I do:

    I slowly bring the light cycle from 12-13 hours to 8 hours of light per day. I also during this time gradually drop the the tempertures to the mid 50's to low 60's. You want to make sure your geckos are well fed and have properly digested all the food you have previously fed them. You should stop feeding them a week or more before you attempt keeping them at lower tempertures since they won't be able to digest and the food would literally rot in their stomachs. During this time you will need to make sure you don't feed them at all and make sure you keep them hydrated by spraying the enclosure once a week or every two weeks. Cool them for 2-2 1/2 months and slowy take them out just as you would have put them in raising their temps back up to 80's to even a hot spot of 90's. I have done this with all my Aussie geckos, except O. lesueurii. Where they are not a warm dwelling gecko as I was told.

    I am in a hurry, hope I didn't leave anything out.

    That's why I posted it, I really think a lot of people have quetions regarding Aussie species that time of the year, and this covers all over them. Oedura lesueurii need it a bit cooler...but other than that, it was a good little overall guide I think?

    Take care and thank Oli, hope the new job is working out!

    Rather than starting a new thread;
    How long after bringing the females out of cooling do you introduce the male?
