When a male Leopard gecko is in contact with adult female Leopard geckos one will very often see Leopard gecko breeding behavior. An interested male will start to wiggle its tail, either swiftly, or it will vibrate.
This Leopard gecko breeding behavior indicates to other Leopard geckos that there is a male in the area and he means business. The vibrating tail behavior can also be heard.
During the pre-copulatory phase, the male will start to stalk the female Leopard gecko, after which he will approach her and start to bite her. Although this may look vicious it is normal Leopard gecko breeding behavior.
