What is a young gecko?
A gecko is a reptile which is like a lizard, rather a smaller version of it, found in hot tropics.
Yes, you can keep a male gecko and a female gecko together. However, do not do so if you are not willing to care for any and all eggs/young geckos that come from it! Don't expect your geckos to not breed, because they will. Also, make sure your habitat is large enough for both of them, and they're both the same species!

The species of gecko native to new zealand are typically green. There are two different types of species and both are striclty native to new zealand. both of these gecko species give birth to live young and there is only 1 other gecko specie able to do this (R. Trachy native to New Caledonia) The way to determine these species from others is that their natural body colour is typically green with white markings.
There are approx 1500 species of gecko and more being discovered each year! The newest one discovered being the micro sized gecko from madagascar! Popular gecko species include: Leopard gecko Crested gecko Gargoyle gecko Pictus gecko Turner gecko Golden gecko Tokay gecko Knob tail geckos day geckos skunk geckos and many many more.
Yes, they can. While the majority of gecko species lay eggs, there are some gecko species that bear live births, in a method known as vivipary or ova-viviparous. Some species that bear live births include: Naultinus elegans elegans, Rhacodactylus trachyrhynchus, Rhacodactylus trachycephal. In addition, there are approximately 40 gecko species endemic to New Zealand which all give birth to live young. No New Zealand gecko lays eggs.
Geckos do not raise their young as most mammals do. Most geckos will deposit two hard shelled eggs, 4-6" deep in soil. Once those eggs have incubated for an extended period of time, the tiny gecklettes are all on their own. with only a small handfull of gecko species bearing live births, this is the process for most species.

well it depends on your definition of "safely." do you mean safe for the gecko, disease wise for you or the gecko, or are you concerned the gecko will bite you? if the gecko is wild, there is usually not a big chance for disease passing from the gecko to you, although you could pass a disease to the gecko, but it's unlikely...if your scared the gecko will bite you, well, it probably wont break…
Most gecko species as well as reptiles in general do not take care of their young. The eggs are deposited into the soil about 4-6" deep and after the incubation period has taken place, the small gecklette's are to fend for them selves. Most gecko species will live solitary until breeding season and after the warmer months, the geckos will not interact with one another again until next season.
