I got home from work tonight, and found a couple of surprises glued to the terrarium door. So naturally I'm seeking advice from others who may have had this or a similar problem themselves.

I know nothing about breeding geckos, and in fact thought I had 2 females. I bought them from a pet store about 6 months ago. 2 days ago one of them shed, and now there are eggs. The one that shed is the female that laid the eggs.

What the heck do I do now? Is she going to stay with them the whole time? How am I going to open the door to feed them with her and her eggs stuck to it?

It's a little comical, actually; or it would be if I wasn't so freaked out about it...

Any and all information is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Thats never fun when they are stuck to the door! All you can really do is just leave them there and they should be fine. As long as your temps dont get to cool they should be fine. Since they are on the door I would try to move it slow and try not to jerk around the eggs to much.

It's got double doors, so I can open the other one, but their water is on the other side and her head is facing towards the center where the doors seperate. *sigh*

Why can't I find any information on the internet? It's a little frustrating.

There really isnt alot of info out there on G. vittatus. I would just be gentle when opening the other door. She will move. Most likely she is going to go where her eggs are when you start moving the other door.

Any idea how long they incubate? I read anywhere from 60-90 days or 3 to 6 months!:shock:

Congrats on the eggs, G. vittatus is incredible. CB hatchlings look incredible as well. Good Luck

Hi,
I've hatched quite a few of this species. Just leave them be and they'll hatch in 90-150 days. :)

Do you have enough room to fit in another bowl temporarily through the other door? I feel bad for you lol, what are the odds of her laying them there :lol:
