    I believe that AFT's are pretty similar to Leopard geckos and they breed sometimes before they turn 1, so I would imagine that Zack is old enough...I also know that it goes by weight...do you know how much Zack weighs??? check out the leopard gecko caresheet to get some pointers. And good luck!!!

    Lyn is correct, you need to check his weight as well, and you need to make sure the girls are the correct with before putting them in with him :)

    I have never thought about weight. Do i need a special weighing scale or something? And how much are the AFTs supposed to weigh?:confused: Zack is around 20 cm and i dont think he is growing anymore.

    You need a digital scale, the regular ones are not too accurate.

    You should look for females with a similar size and weight. You should quarantine them prior to getting them together.
    Make sure they are healthy and have enough calcium reserves, otherwise breeding might result in severe problems or death.
