    Default Help determining the sex of my geckos.....


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I am new to this forum and I know this is asked a million times but my two Leopard Geckos are a little over 4 months old and I have spent the last hours wearing the poor things out trying to get good pictures for help in determining if they are male or female. I was told they were suppose to be females when I purchased them, and I know two males can't be in the same enclosure. They have always gotten along great and still do but since I am thinking they may be males I'm wondering if it is safe to leave them for now or should I separate them before they hurt each other later on.....my other gecko and my tree frog have their own tanks but these two are housed together and I'm worried they may start fighting. I know it's hard to tell from pictures but any help or guesses will be greatly appreciated!!!! The first 3 pics are of one and the other 3 pics are of the second one.

    Just separate them anyway to be safe. You should be able to tell for sure in a few months.

    I second Heather's reply. In a few months, you will be able to tell for sure.

    I'm going to go ahead and separate them...I would hate for one of them to get hurt from something I could have kept from happening. Thanks so much.

    By the looks of it, both are male - but you'll definitely be able to tell once they get a bit older.
    But glad to hear that you separated them, always good to stop something from happening before it even starts!

    the first one looks like a female and the second one male-I'd separate them for safety 4 months is too young to breed

    now that I looked at the pictures closely, they both seem like males, but it'll be easier to tell soon
