Brumation? Planning on breeding

Post by ashleyevan on Mon Nov 28, 2011 5:09 pm

I've seen in other posts that if you dont plan on breeding your geckos, they dont need to go into brumation. So does that mean in I do plan on breeding they should? I havent really heard anything else about this. And also, if I plan on breeding this season should i be preparing them for anything this far ahead?

Brumation is not necessary, some breeders do it to trigger the ovulation of female leopard geckos. It's just a technique of lowering the temperature and reduce their exposure to light for a period of a few weeks. Then after that raise the temperature and give them a longer daylight cycle. You are just triggering the whole winter > spring seasonal changes.

No, its not necessary.

How old/big are your leos you are planning to breed?
Breeding isn't something that should be taken lightly. It takes a lot of time, money and responsibility.
I suggest doing a LOT of research first.

Good luck on your future breeding plans.

Awesome!
I'm planning on breeding my snowglows after new years. Smile
I've got some links to some great breeding information if you'd like me to PM them to you Smile They are really helpful.
What morphs are the leos you are planning to breed?

Awesome.
My advice is not to get an albino male.
You shouldn't mix the albino strains.
And I will definitely PM you the links right now! Smile
