    leo breeding

    yea most definitly. when you say your cresteds didnt thrive, what does that mean, they just didnt do well or did they die. im not as experianced with crested geckos as i am with leopard geckos but i hear with cresteds you dont need an incubator. they can be incubated at room temp. i feel that...

    also what are three morphs that are good to breed. im not trying to buy the most expensive gecko so i want to find each gecko under 90 dollars. under 80 would be best just because i dont have a job and im just buying this with years of my allowance saved up. i know you cant get much staying that...

    Is my leopard gecko male or female?!

    Its easier to see from the side. If right behind the vent is flat it is a female if it is round its a male. Also try not to hold the gecko like that because it can stress them out and they will drop there tail. Put it on a piece of glass or the top mesh of the cage and take the photo from under

    Question about tail

    You should soak it at least 3 times a month. I give a day every week to soak all my pets to keep them hydrated

    Red bump on vent?

    Looks almost like a puncture wound is there any thing in it. To get a better pick put her on a piece of glass or the mesh on top of her cage and take the pick from under and it shkuldnt be as blurry

    Stuck Shed on Toes.

I look back at this and feel terrible about this. now in high school and not just and ignorant 1st grader she is a healthy gecko but...
