I like these little guys too.
Here's an s. argus egg that should hatch in a week or so.

Boy aren't they just tiny. Curious...can you move those eggs around without them "drowning" inside? I know they are hard shelled. Is there a difference between soft and hard shelled?

I usually mark the eggs so I can keep them the way I find them lying (hence the black dot).
I have had unmarked hard shelled eggs get rotated around and they seem to hatch just fine (mainly phelsuma eggs).

Yay for spam.

Do they bury the eggs?

Wow, Dennis, outstanding geckos. I checked out your website, that's quite collection of cool, tiny geckos you have going. Makes me wish I lived in Germany.

I don't know. These hatchlings are tiny. It can barely chunk down a melanogaster fruit fly.

Hi Ken,
Hatchlings of S. argus are about 2,8cm in total. S. nicholsi become much bigger, about 4cm.

Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Awsome that such a "big" gecko can come out of such a tiny egg :D

Hello:
It is truly amazing at how well they survive in the wild in spite of their size. They are very unique geckos!
Have a Great Day!!!
