  • My gargs bred in September, my female isn't consistently laying eggs.

    I paired up my gargoyles in September of 2019, and they bred immediately after I introduced them. She has laid one infertile egg since then; that was on December 12th. I saw them doing the deed, but I'm wondering if they successfully bred. I don't think they did, considering she hasn't laid anything fertile. This is my first time breeding geckos; I'm highly inexperienced. They did start to become aggressive towards each other, so I separated them since.
    Is the inconsistent egg-laying normal? This is also my female's first time breeding.

    How old is your female? If not 2 yrs old and not 45 grams of weight, she may not be ready to be bred. otherwise, if she is ready, they probably did not breed successfully.

      She's a little over 2 years old. She laid her very first infertile egg when she was a little over a year old. She's 65-70 grams.
      Due to the sexual aggression my male displayed, is it worth reintroducing them? Can I do it safely?

        I usually supervise, and never put the female into the male's enclosure. That can cause the males to be overly aggressive. I try it for 5 minutes, and if they get too aggressive, remove one of them and try the next night.
