Thread: New to breeding

    Default New to breeding

    Hey all, my first post female is 36 grams and my male is 51 grams.... are they to far apart in weight to attempt copulation?

    I've done lot of research on these geckos but breeding is a new territory for me. I'm not looking for perfection.....

    Hi ideally the closer they are in weight the better.
    One may reject the other due to the size difference but ? maybe not.
    There is always the risk of injury which I guess is greater with a larger size difference.
    Personally I would want any female that I was going to breed to be greater than 40-45g as once mated she is likely to lay pairs of eggs all season & that can take it quite a bit out of the female & she can lose quite a bit of weight.
    These are just my views so other breeders views may differ.
    Worth checking her calcium stores too.

    Thanks, for the reply I also feel like she could put on some more weight as well!
