    It never hurts to google the name you were given, which I did: Cyrtodactylus intermedius. Then you can google Cyrtodactylus intermedius care and get the goods. Here is an old Gecko Time article:...

    When I was breeding, I would put the males and females together mid-January, probably before most of them were ovulating. I would keep the males with the females for the entire breeding season, so...

    What kind of heat are you using? What's the temperature on the floor of the hot side? Where did you get the gecko from? When in the day/night are you feeding him? I will have more suggestions if I...

    Not silly questions at all! I think the 10-3 light idea is a good one. Leopard geckos, being nocturnal, don't need lots of D3, but they need some. In the wild, they're actually "crepuscular",...

    Some of the ethics depend on your general view about the status of pre-born creatures. When the egg is laid, a fertile egg will show (when candled) a red spot with a round red circle. I'd guess it...

    Welcome and congrats on your new gecko. I also live in the Boston area and have many geckos in many cages. You're right that if you have a heating pad on one side and a heat lamp on the other side,...

    The gecko looks well proportioned, so I don't think you have to worry about size. It's hard to tell the sex because the picture isn't enough of a close-up, but I'm thinking female.

    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...

    It's definitely a hypo stripe. I would omit the "bandit" because only geckos that are known to be from the bandit line are really called that. I also hesitate to call any gecko a w&Y (white and...

    1. Leopard geckos do retain sperm. The number of clutches they'll produce after 1 pairing is variable, probably at least 3. When I was breeding I did have a situation where the male had only 1...

    I know it looks like an albino but it's not. It's a murphy patternless. As it matures, the beige markings will fade and it will be pale yellow with a white tail. Google some images (or check out...

    It certainly wouldn't hurt to take him to the vet. I have also had success cleaning the affected area gently with a q-tip and some hydrogen peroxide.

    Some people advocate taking the legs off the crickets so they can't get out of a bowl and that may work. Here are 2 articles I wrote about feeding geckos who aren't eating. Possibly something in...

    It depends on the gecko. I have leopard and crested geckos that like to chill in my hand and I have leopard and crested geckos who hate being held and will squirm and even bite to get free.

    A gecko could be het for both Bell and Tremper and I suppose a gecko could actually have 2 Bell genes and 2 Tremper genes which would make it both Bell and Tremper, though I think this is unusual. I...

    I could guess Tremper because it's the most common. I could guess Bell because it's on the dark side for coloring (but so are many Trempers). So my guessing will not get you anywhere.
