The male I have is obviously male but I got a second one which is slightly smaller and has faint pores and only a few. My males stick out quite a bit and are fully along the width of his body while my other has only four on each side. They get along and what I have found online says it is “probably” female but I want to be sure so I don’t have bald geckos later!

Even if it is female, do you really want to put a male and female together and end up with eggs? If you choose not to hatch them, the female has expended a lot of energy and resources that eventually take its toll. If you do choose to incubate and hatch, are you really ready for that? Consider keeping them separate.

I have thought about that and with how few they have I think I’ll be okay I also have lots of extra tanks. I noticed some mating behavior from the male, shaking the head and rubbing his head with the other. I’m not sure if it a for sure sign that they are opposite genders I’m not sure if it could just be triggered. My sister found some little eggs on our welcome mat a few weeks ago so I bought a incubator but had them in a container in the tank with them for a time so I’m not sure if that triggered the mating behavior. They get along and hang out together.
