If they were living together anyway(i may have left that part out) would it then be ok. Almost every place that i have seen sell cresties keeps them together(according to size)

:Even if you get a gecko from the same place it doesn't mean it will be safe. Babies are kept seperate to ensure that they get the best possible feed and don't pick on each other. Yes you will need to quaranteen(3+ months, longer is better). Most breeders have more than a few animals when the species doesn't have a large clutch size, so it is possible that they aren't related. Ask the person you are buying the animal from. They probably keep records. About inbreeding, many people say it is bad, others say it has no bad affects. I try not to get related animals, and keep track who I buy from. I've talked to a few breeders about this and they said they haven't seen any bad affects at all. Most breeders try not to breed related individuals. In my opinion it probably won't have bad affect, but it is best to get unrelated species if you can.

::Wouldnt that be inbreeding if they bred? Wont they get Deformaties? I may be wrong. Just my thought on the matter

:::I have two crested gecko from two different places. They are both being quantined for one another. My question is, i want to get a feemale for my male. The female is from the same place, the same enclosure, probably the same parents. Do i need to quantine that one? Thanks
