    Default Female Leopard Gecko has Never Laid Eggs?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello! I know how to tell if a leopard gecko is female or male, and as far as I can tell my leopard gecko is a female. She gets along with other females (but is not housed with any, my sibling has a female as well) and has never displayed territorialism or anything along those lines. I guess my question is the following - do all female leopard geckos lay eggs? I have had this gecko for around 6 years and not once has she ever layed an egg. She has never encountered a male, so I would assume this is why? But even then I would expect her to lay unfertilized ones...

    Additional information: She is in good health, plump tail, on a diet of gut-loaded large crickets. Reptile carpet, multiple hides, cool and hot sides of her cage, healthy and active behavior etc. She has just never laid an egg. I do not intend on breeding her, I'm just really curious! Here is a picture for reference.

    Nearly all female geckos ovulate, but without the presence of a male, most of them absorb the ovulation and never lay an egg. At the moment I have 29 female leopard geckos. I have not been breeding since 2017 and since 2018 only 1 gecko has ever laid eggs.
