Is leopard gecko breeding very profitable? I've recently been researching the subject and thinking about getting a breeding pair. Pros and cons? Also general leopard gecko discussion.

yeah you'll make so much money bro

I'm not expecting to make anything close to an income. I'm just looking at it as a hobby that could pay for itself.

in the US a hobby that pays for itself is called a business. The government will tax it.

But no, I doubt breeding geckos will pay for itself, especially when you count the cost of the real estate and utilities used to do it. It might make a handy little tax write-off, except that when a business loses money the IRS likes to suddenly call it a hobby.

Nah. You're very lucky to break even with leo breeding. Since the reptile industry works primarily through contacts and long term reputation it is difficult to get to a point where people trust you and your animals. Just selling them at all will be a struggle at first, nevermind profit.

You're better off with pretty much any gecko other than leopards if you're trying to breed and sell them.

Trust me from experience dont its to much hassle

Could it pay for itself? Yes. I breed Crested Geckos. Not really profesionally. I just think it's fine. I sell the babies to the local reptile place for $20 each, and they resale them for $60. It covers my costs and I enjoy watching life come into the world.

That said, Leapords are MUCH more common than cresties and worth much less as babies. Which is why morphs are everywhere. Same as with Ball Pythons, when there are too many breeders, they just start morphing shit trying to make a new market. There are crestie morphs, but nothing like leapords.

You would probably have a difficult time selling the babies for any real money. but you might be able to cover your costs if you already have most of the gear needed.
