    Default Introducing the male and first time breeding.


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello! I need some advice. Im gonna breed my leopard geckos this spring (for the first time ever). Female eclipse, het bell albino and male RADAR (proven breeder). My female was on brumation from november to february. I woke her up 3 weeks ago and she has been eating well, acting normally and is in good shape. Im thinking of introducing her to the male this weekend. How should I do that? In her enclosure or in the male's enclosure? Or maybe in a whole different enclosure? How long should they be together? Otherwise I have been educating myself on this subject but these are some of the questions I have not found clear answer.

    In the past, I have just placed the male gecko into the female's enclosure. To be extra certain, you could clean everything and re-arrange the furniture before introducing the geckos. I can't advise on how long to keep them together since I would keep the male with the females for the entire breeding season. Obviously, if you're going to separate them again, you could do so once you've witnessed copulation, though they may do it when you're not watching. You could also wait until you can see eggs in the female's belly. The hardest thing to be sure about is whether they are displaying mating or aggressive behavior; you'll have to use your judgement. Obviously screaming and biting are not OK (except for the male biting the female's neck).
