So I am planning a trial run at reptile breeding, with an eye towards either breeding as a hobby or possibly developing a breeding business. I have made friends with a lady who owns a local reptile store who has told me I can sell offspring through her store, so worst case if I find I don't enjoy reptile breeding I can sell off the babies through her store and sell off the breeding equipment readily to recoup some of the starting costs. I am still in the process of getting the equipment. I have a medium rack mount with heat tape on order. The rack is capable of holding up to to 12 bins that would be large enough to house hatchling Ball Pythons or similarly sized animals, or up to 6 bins that would be large enough for juveniles. Next on my list of items is clear Sterilite bins to go in the rack, thermostats, digital thermometers, hygrometers, incubator, substrate, food/water dishes and hides. Once I have the equipment, I will dial in temps/humidity prior to buying any animals. Originally I was thinking to start with Ball Pythons, however the two I have currently are at least a year probably more like 2 years away from being large/old enough to breed, and my wife who is only recently getting over her fear of reptiles said no more snakes for now. She is okay with me breeding small-ish lizards now and is open to the idea of breeding my super pastel ball python to her banana ball python once they are large enough to breed though. Since snakes are no longer an option(for now), I was leaning towards leopard geckos since they seem to be well suited to breeding in rack setups, they don't require UVB, they are reasonably hardy in general, and there are a large number of morphs that can mixed and matched to make really cool looking babies. They also have small clutches so I don't have to worry about suddenly having more animals than I can house if I start with just a single male and 2-4 females. Others I have discussed this with have suggested crested geckos or blue-tongue skinks as an alternative to leos, but I am skeptical that either would do well in a rack setup. I have at least a couple months before I make a final decision though, so I am looking for help at making a list of lizards that would be good alternatives to leopard geckos and meet the following criteria, as well as pros/cons of each. - Suitable for a beginning breeding project. - Suitable to be bred and housed in the rack system described above. - A variety of morphs available to mix and match. - Clutch size small enough that 2-4 females wouldn't result in more offspring than could be housed in the rack that I described above.
