View Full Version : Gekko Vittatus Eggs

02-27-2008, 09:18 PM
Finally my female had her eggs! I have always wanted to watch and get pictures of a gecko in general having eggs but the picture part is going to be very tough. She had already had one of the eggs by the time I got my Nikon out so I had to take a picture of her having the next one and it sounded simple. Well, it was much quicker than I imagined and totally caught me off guard. The egg just came out so quick I couldn’t have gotten a shot. After that she got her feet and started like molding the egg even though it was already round. I do not know exactly what she was doing but it was pretty cool.

Hope they’re both fertile.
Here are some pictures

yes they do mold them with their feet. i think my tokay squeezed out some the other night. i have yet to check behind the log. the 2 together may be good, last might be a dud, but what is going on with the tail. prior eggs, very small duds?

Awesome man. Congrats on the eggs. The vittatus I got off you are doing really good, I need to get more pics of them and post them.

Yeah, the egg above the two ones she just laid is a dud. I did not remove it because I knew she would lay these two eggs close by the dud one. I like it when she lays them there because the heat lamp incubates the eggs. I also noticed how small the other eggs were and surprisingly they were not duds, I got two little baby's out of them. :D

Thank you, the egg above the two she was laying was a dud and I just have not got it off the glass yet. I wish she would have 3 of them at one time. :biggrin:
