Can You Put a Baby Leopard Gecko With Adults?
Leopard geckos are one of the most popular pet lizards. But can you mix young baby leopard geckos with adult ones in their enclosure?
- Getting baby geckos used to each other at a young age can help them develop better social skills with fellow geckos.
- It may reduce stress levels as they can recognize and become familiar with each other before reaching adulthood.
- It gives them a familiar safety in numbers feeling.
- One of the biggest and most important negative effects of putting baby geckos together with adults is that adult geckos are a source of stress for younger geckos.
- If you house them together, baby leopard geckos may be intimidated by the larger geckos and bullied.
- They may also be more exposed to diseases from the adult geckos, as adult geckos often have weaker immune systems.
Overall, there are both pros and cons to mixing young leopard geckos with adults. If you are considering doing this, make sure you have a good plan in place and you think it through carefully. Also, it is important to monitor them carefully, as they may need to be separated if they start bulling or stressing each other out.
