can you put more than one leopard gecko in a tank?

I have one now, and am wondering if he would get along with another one if I added it to the tank. I think he is lonely, he gets very excited when I open his tank to feed him and pet him. He enjoys the attention very much. I just wonder if he would be happy to have a companion or if they would fight.

Why don't you give it a try and see what happens. Make sure you are there to rescue one of them if something bad were to happen.

I have two leopard geckos. You should never put 2 leopard geckos in the same tank unless you know for sure they are both females. If they are both males, more than likely they will fight and probably hurt each other. I have heard of a few people putting 2 males together, but that was mostly if they were bought together and put in the same tank from the very beginning or they were brothers. If you do put more than one gecko in a tank, be sure to have at least a 20 gallon tank. Both of my geckos each have their own 20 gallon tanks. I orignally bought a 10 gallon for the first one and after I put in all the items it needed to live, I felt it was too crowded. I am sure your gecko is just happy to see you and probably wants to be fed. They do love attention, but are mostly solitary creatures. Have fun!:-) Char
