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.

Many gecko projects we have were picked because we enjoyed them. Projects such as the bandit project and sunglows were my personal favorites. This is key to keeping your interest level high.
As much as you should pick breeding projects you enjoy, you should also realize some morphs are not as popular. There’s no doubt some morphs are purchased more than others. Most do sell but they don’t sell at the same rate. It’s your job to do some research. Go browse some gecko websites, you’ll want to look at what morphs are sold, which breeds are sold quicker than others, and what morphs tend to stay available longer. You pretty much want to conduct your own market research.
