erm, whats this the Kripton factor?

am I right in thinking you want to bred two leos, keep a male, and breed that to another female, then keep a female from that and breed back to the first male

In other words, breed grand daughter to grandfather?

In theory yes you could do this, but you are rising increased risk of problems.

if its only the one generation you do this for you should be ok.

I wouldn't breed back more than one generation (ie baby to its parents but no further back) as you run a higer high of having genetic problems with the babies. Id rather get different blood from somewhere to keep the genes strong in the geckos.
