The only reason why I mentioned a genetic disorder is because I have seen a few publications lately about same sex mating in livestock. Apparently all had an underdeveloped region in the central area of the brain, due to an error in the genes. However I forgot to realize that situation would only work if crested geckos relied on their genes for sex determination. We pretty much know that isnít the case anymore. Since a crested geckos sex is strongly linked to itís incubation temps, they very well could be hot females. The only doubt I have is the female previously laid eggs. Hot females are very aggressive and I canít see a male approaching one without his head getting bitten off, let alone mating with one. But there is a first for everything =). Anyway, just more food for thought.
