The 2018 leopard gecko breeding season is upon us.  Every year adult female leopard geckos will start to ovulate around January through June/July.  If you have an adult leopard gecko, you should start to notice some behavior and feeding changes soon.

Both male and female leopard geckos could refuse food off and on throughout the breeding season, as we outlined in “My Leopard Gecko Won’t Eat” article.  Some leopard geckos will fast through the whole season.  You should not be alarmed.  This is all part of the normal leopard gecko breeding season cycles.

What’s the difference between leopard gecko and fat tailed gecko?  Leopard gecko and african fat-tailed gecko share the same subfamily “Eublepharidae”.  Eublepharidae are a family of geckos lacking sticky pads on their toes (they have claws instead).  They also have movable eyelids unlike other species of geckos.  Aside from being in the same subfamily, leopard gecko and african fat-tailed are two different species from different parts of the world.

Cute Bandit Leopard Geckos – Deino and Enyo


I was feeding the geckos one day and saw this as I opened their tank.  These two ultra cute bandit leopard geckos poked their heads out because they knew it was feeding time.  They are my reliable bandit female breeders, they’ve produced beautiful and healthy offspring for the past 4 years for us.  I don’t normally keep geckos in pairs, but these two have been living harmoniously since they were juveniles.  We saw no reason to break them apart, they never displayed aggressive behaviors toward each other.  These two are always excited during feed time, one prefer superworms the other prefer dubia roaches.  This was such a cute sight I had to snap a quick pic.  Hope you enjoy it!
