Leopard Gecko Incubation Temperature

The Leopard gecko incubation temperature is the temperature the incubator must be set at to get viable Leopard gecko babies after incubation. It is a known fact that Leopard gecko have what we call a temperature-dependant sexual dimorphism. In other words, the Leopard gecko incubation temperature contributes to the sexual ratio of males vs. females. In most other lizard species the sexual ratio is equal for males and females, but with Leopard geckos the ratio can partially be controlled with the upper and lower range of the normal incubating temperatures.

The normal Leopard gecko incubation temperature, which is said to produce an equal amount of males and females is 26 - 32 C / 80 - 90 F. To slightly favor males over females higher incubation temperatures should be used (31 - 32 C / 88 - 90 F). Females Leopard gecko babies will be slightly more at 26 - 27 C / 80 - 82 C.

The Leopard gecko incubation temperature will have an affect on the incubation period.
