Do you need 2 crested geckos?

It's important to note that when it comes to housing two Crested geckos together, not all geckos are created equal. Specifically it's not recommended to house two male geckos together, as they will become territorial and aggressive towards one another.

On the other hand, housing two female Crested geckos of similar size can work well, as they tend to be more social and cooperative with one another. However, it's important to keep an eye on female geckos as well, as even geckos of similar size and gender can sometimes become stressed or fight with one another.

During the breeding season, it's possible to place a male gecko into a female's enclosure for mating purposes. However, it's crucial to supervise them closely to ensure that they are not becoming stressed or fighting with one another.

In summary, while housing two Crested geckos together can be a rewarding experience, it's important to consider the individual personalities and needs of each gecko before making the decision. Ultimately, with careful monitoring and attention to their behavior, you can ensure that your geckos are living happily and healthily together, just like two peas in a pod!
