How can you tell a male from a female leopard gecko?
For adult leopard geckos, look at the region between their legs, on the underside. If you see a row of small pores forming a ‘V’ and a slight bulging below the vent, it’s a boy. If you don’t see any bulges and the pores are either not visible or are too small, it’s a girl.
Can you keep a male and female leopard gecko together?
A male and female gecko pair can live happily together in a single tank or enclosure. Likewise, a group of females and a single male can also live together with the proper amount of space and care.
Is it better to own a male or female leopard gecko?
Male leopard geckos live longer with proper care, have less health related issues, and their behaviors are more stable. Female leopard geckos can be housed together in groups given similar size/temperament, larger tanks, and more hides. In general leopard geckos get more docile as they get older.
Can a baby female be with an older male leopard gecko?
A female should never be kept with a male unless it’s for breeding. Even two male Leopard Geckos must not be kept together.
