You don't want to sell a hatchling before 15g at a minimum or ship one under 20g. Once it has reached those weights and it is eating well with no issues and having no bathroom problems you can put it up for sale. [emoji4]

Quite possibly. If all of his temperatures and husbandry are matching up to what they should be and you have ruled out parasites, impaction and things like illness it is a reasonable conclusion. Males have been known to go off of feed during breeding season just like the females do. I haven't myself experienced it with a male that hasn't already been paired, so maybe another breeder can talk about it happening with males housed alone. I do know some males, will not eat or severely limit their eating when breeding though.

Also, 7-8 months is right around when a male hits sexual maturity in Leopard Geckos and this is right now the middle of the breeding season at full swing.

Although, they hit sexual maturity around 7-8 months (male) you don't want to breed until at least 1 year and 50+ grams. Same for females! [emoji3]
