    Default Can you mix mourning gecko(L. Lugubris) types?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello! I am looking into grabbing a few mournings at an upcoming expo, and I was wondering if you could mix types. For example, a type A with a Hawaiian.

    I would assume that, since they are the same species, cannot crossbreed, and are communal, it would be fine? Like mixing two different morphs?

    Thank you!

    In my opinion if they are the same species, it seems fine.

    as long as care requirements are very similar, sure.

    The different types actually do not play well together. We don't recommend keeping them together. They can be aggressive to each other or dominate for food/space.

    I have 2 types of Mourning geckos in my tank. I have type "A" mixed in with my Hawaiian type and I have no problems. I have egg laying tubes in my cage and some of the girls lay their eggs in the tube and some don't. As for eating the babies, I have bark pieces and plants and I have found babies in my tank. Once the geckos lay eggs in tube, I remove tube and put in 32oz deli cups with vented lids housed with a small piece of plant and sphagnum moss (misted every few days) to keep up humidity. Once eggs hatch, I housed them in deli cups til they reach 3-4 months old by this time I put them in a separate tank til they get large enough to go into larger tank. I feed them CG and dusted flies. Mine seem to like the CG food without water. I also feed variety of baby food with vitamins and D3 powder also. My mourning geckos lay eggs year round with no problems.
