Gravid leopard gecko?

Gravid leopard gecko?

Postby Neboo » Fri Sep 16, 2005 8:43 am

At the SOS expo this year I brought a leopard gecko, she ate well till about July when she cut her food intake I thought it was just winter, in August she started to loose weight so I took her to the vet, the vet seems to think she is gravid, she was not a baby when I got her and she is on her own, dos anyone know if this is possible?

It is possible. I would assume they can retain sperm. You are more than welcome to bring her around sometime we can have a look. You can usually see two whitish oval "organs" if you look at her belly.
