View Full Version : My vittatus eggs are very well protected!!

The eggs are now three weeks old, and still my couple is protecting their eggs, each and every our off the day!:?
I've tried to place a plastic box over the eggs, but it only resulted in a very, very, angry vittatus that bit my hand and then refused to let go...:shock:
During the day is mostly Mister Skunk who guards the eggs. By night it's Miss Stripe. Anybody have suggestions about what I should do??????

I didn't cover the eggs when I kept this species. They hatched out fine with the parents.

The eggs will be fine especially if they are protecting them like that.

That is almost enough to make me want vittatus ! Do they eat fruit like my Ulikovski? It would make sense that they would, as do most geckos of an aboreal nature, but I dunno. Very cool geckos, and best of luck on all fronts!
