  • Flying gecko breeding season?

    Hi guys,
    I have a question about my flying gecko pair that has been bothering me for a while. My flying geckos last laid a clutch of eggs in January, which was about 2 weeks after the previous clutch. Now it's March, and I haven't observed any sign of the female being gravid or any mating at all. Do flying geckos have some sort of breeding season like cresties?

    I know these guys are pretty uncommon these days, but any advice would be greatly appreciated. I would also really like to know the incubation time for flying gecko eggs if possible.

    Sorry if I'm asking a little much, but thanks for reading.

    Yes, they do. They breed during the rainy season in their natural territories. You can simulate those conditions. I would recommend reading up further on them. There is also a facebook group for them as well.

      So I can just mist heavily on their enclosure for a few months?

        That should work, it's the same with cresties just start misting more frequent to simulate rainy season which usually kids up their hormones and reproductivness

          It's not like cresties actually.

          They need consistent warm temps (mid to high 80's), more frequent misting, longer daylight periods, and having UVB also stimulates breeding. These guys like it very warm and humid. Their eggs also need a consistent warm and humid environment or the babies will not make it out of the egg. Heavy calcium supplementation is important, and I very highly recommend UVB if you don't have it.

          I work with three different species of Ptychozoon and have had a lot of success with them. Feel free to message me if you like. I'd also check out that facebook group. There are people there with a lot of experience from around the world.
