  • Bleeding when mating?

    I have a new male crested gecko that i believe is bleeding when he breeds. i seperated him from the girls.. i want to know if anyone knows what is going on.

    Thanks

    Can you post some pictures? Sometimes the hemipenes can get stuck out, called a hemipenal prolapse. If that's the case, I have a few tips I can give. but a picture would be helpful.

      Yeah, I'd be curious to see what this looks like... I remember the first time my ex saw my geckos mating, he freaked cause he thought the boy got bit and his guts were hanging out... hahaha, sure enough my boy licked his "guts" clean and put them back in his hemipenal bulge lol.

            I posted a pic of him on my page. I don't really know how to use the forum yet.

              Could it be the female that is bleeding? Could it be from biting each other?

                No. I looked on both geckos. Not one scratch. And when I took him out I checked his area it had dried blood.. Idk what's going on

                  Again, it could be from the female... if he has dried blood on his are, it could have come from inside of her also... Perhaps you should separate them for a while, and keep tabs on both of them individually to make sure there are no other problems with either of them. I have never seen a gecko bleed during or after mating, but I'm sure it can happen as they can get a little violent sometimes.

                  If you are noticing a significant amount of blood on more than one occasion, separate them, put them both on paper towel substrate, and keep close watch on each of them.

                      I did a Google search and found this, seems this has happened before and asked about here on the forums.

                          Wow... The scenario in that thread sounds intense. I would have liked to hear the outcome.

                              If any of your pets are literally squirting blood, I would go to a vet asap.

                              I know if I was squirting blood I would head to a doctor right away!!
