I have a blind leopard gecko that came in with another leopard gecko and I was unsure if I should house them together or not. I know the risk of the competition for food as well as the handicap, I just wanted to make sure of the choice since they were considered a bonded pair.
There is no such thing as a bonded pair with leopard geckos. Those feelings are just anthropomorphized onto them. Since one gecko is blind it will need special care. Keep it in a small tank/tub with no loose substrate (paper towels or slate/tile work best). You want rough edges but nothing sharp. You want to try to avoid changing the layout, but adding some decorations wouldn’t hurt for enrichment (don’t move things like the water dish). It will also need fed out of a dish or from tongs since it won’t be able to see the food. These are the recommendations for all geckos but it is much more important with a handicapped gecko.
Best bet would be not to house them together even if they’re both females?
Definitely don’t house them together. Leopard geckos shouldn’t be housed together at all, especially with a disabled one.
I figured because that’s what I’ve been getting the same answer when I was researching more about it. I know as juveniles they are housed together, but are more solitary animals.
