Default Crested gecko: is this girl a boy?

Good evening,


I am still confused by the pictures I find online descibing the difference between male and female crested geckos. I've previously been led to believe this gecko is female.


Would anyone care to agree or disagree please?


Thanks very much for your help.

That looks Male. It has balls, which is obvious.
Side image will confirm.

Thanks very much.


In that case, I could easily convince myself that his sibling is also male, and I should consider separating them.


What do you think please?

Thanks again for your help.


Plants have really taken off in the spare tank, so time one of them starts exploring it.

They were my first two, and got them when they were three months old. They are 25 grams now.


Due to the addiction, I have since got two adult females too. Really enjoying making the bioactive enclosures as well. Who knows where it will end.

That’s the best bit! Bio is the best way to go, so good for them too! Currently have 4 adult females, 3 males and 10 babies, also 6 eggs, and the girls are about to lay again! They hold sperm just to let you know, so if you breed prepare for monthly eggs even if you separate after! One of my girls has held sperm for about 6/7 months now, she’s with another Male now and still not produced babies from him! All still from the previous Male.
You’ll get more I bet! They’re such lovely geckos to keep!
