What Temp to Incubate Crested Gecko Eggs

The best temperature for hatching crested gecko eggs is a bit cooler, around 68-70 degrees Fahrenheit (20-21 degrees Celsius).

Even though this cooler time takes longer (about 90-120 days), it’s thought to be good for the baby geckos growing inside.

Research has found that geckos hatched at cooler temperatures usually come out bigger and with stronger bodies and crests.

This is probably because the slower growth gives their organs and tissues more time to develop properly.

Here’s a breakdown of temperature and incubation time:

  • 68-70°F (20-21°C): 90-120 days (longer incubation, healthier hatchlings)
  • Mid-70s°F (around 24°C): Faster incubation (but hatchlings may be smaller or less robust). Generally safe.
  • Over 75-80°F: Don’t do that!
