Leopard Gecko Help
Hey. I am new to this forum and would just like to ask a few questions about my leopard geckos!
I have 3 tanks containing 8 geckos altogether.
I have two 4 year old geckos (male and female) in one tank and the female is totally tame, however the male (who is quite a bit bigger) will not tolerate being held at all. He goes all rigid and makes a run for it, however both geckos have had the same amount of attention!
This happened with the grandchildren of these two geckos too. We have two boys we hatched 2 years ago and a girl and none of them like to be held. However two of them are deffinatly boys but they have been living together for 2 years - since birth with no problems. Why is this? Could it be because one of them lost his tail in a fight with his dad (we didn't find the egg and it hatched in the tank)?
Also, what size difference would you deem safe for two geckos to go together? I have a 5 week old (about the size of your index finger and *totally* adorable - purple tail!!!) and twin 3 week old geckos (about the size of your pinky) and they seem to be doing well as they are tweezer fed, but how well would they do if this wasnt the case?
I want to learn so much more about these creatures as i only have the knowledge from books and not first hand! Sorry if this post has gone on a bit.
