Question How to start breeding

I'm wanting to start breeding. What would be a good first time breeder animal. I've been thinking about Leopard Geckos as they have small clutches. What would you guys think?

They may be a good starter but they are over bred so personally, unless you go for some high end morphs I wouldn't advise it. Same with bearded dragons, corn snakes and royal pythons. All considered easier species but very over bred. Sorry to be so negative on the subject. What reptiles are you experienced with?

Currently just a 1.0 corn but I'm planning on getting a leopard gecko and have it for a few months so I am accustomed to actually owning one and providing the correct husbandry

I would say leopard geckos, but only breed them if you can provide space for the hatchlings.
would you be able to take them to the vets if anything goes wrong? Not long ago I had one of my female leopard geckos leave cuts all down the side of the males neck.
Not trying to put you off but there are many situations that could go wrong.
But very interesting and full of rewards when done right! Good luck

Pick a species you like, are passionate about and one that you are able and wouldn't mind keeping all the hatchlings from

Got to agree with Esiuol here. Breeding should be considered an extension of an already enjoyful hobby. If you have species you enjoy keeping, breeding is a great 'next step' venture. I wouldn't look to keep something just becuase you want to breed it
