    Ms. C. p. zebraicus has just laid her second pair of fertile eggs! She buried these and presently stands watch.

    /\ Thanks, Tamara, I'm really excited about these eggs too.

    Yesterday I dug out the second two eggs and placed them in an incubator especially to keep the humidity more constant.

    Great, we don't use a incubator for our Cyrtodactylus eggs but keep the container with the eggs in the enclosure with the parent's, could take them a little longer to hatch but works fine as well.
    No special reason for it though other then saving space.., we used to use the incubators for them too but now they are all filled to the top with Strophurus eggs.

    Sounds like m-a-n-y eggs!

    Have you guys had any trouble with humidity when keeping the egg container inside the parent's enclosure?

    How many days to hatching that way?

    Do you keep your Cyrtodactylus pairs together year round?

    Haven't had problems with the humidity, but we use seramis (something like repashy superhatch) as a medium so we can see when it's getting too dry.., the eggs are placed on dry peat in bottlecaps , lifted from the wett medium , with 2 tiny pinholes in the container for airflow.

    The first clutch we incubated that way took 146 days, the following clutches all where somewhere between 100-120 days, but she lays them where she likes, so sometimes we miss a clutch for a few days before we find it.

    One time, we only found one egg and a few days after it hatched we spotted a hatchling loose in the enclosure so we must have missed the other one, the young however was hiding between both his parents and the father bit Kevin when he was trying to catch it...
    So, atleast that time, the parents also showed signs of caring for their young, but we don't feel confident enough abouth that to try and leave the eggs with them, as i don't think parental care is something typical for most Cyrtodactylus species.

    Yes, we keep them together during the year but ours are not the most prolific breeders, they produce around 4-5 clutches a year so it isn't that hard on the female.., she also eats snails and always has good filled endolymphatic sacs so we don't worry abouth her as much as we do with some of our other species.
    If she would produce more clutches it be harder on her and we would seperate them as well.

    Didn't species but my female crested laid eggs in the viv and they hatched out inside. I would have incubated them but I didn't find them until they were on the glass lol.

    Tamara ~
    Seramis is great! I'm lucky! I have some from a stateside geckophile and even more from a friend in Europe! As far as I know, seramis is not available in the USA. Humidity fluctuates widely, so I appreciate being able to see those little bubbles on the insides of the plastic egg boxes.

    I placed each of the 4 eggs in bottle caps filled with a little seramis. Those bottle caps sit on top of the bed of seramis in the egg box.

    For my Oedura castelnaui eggs, I just made little indentations in the seramis, no separate bottle caps.

    I don't have A/C. My upstairs gecko room/bedroom gets over 80*F at times, though usually not by much. I figure the adults would be more tolerant of that than the eggs.

    Are these hatching times for your Cyrtodactylus pubisulcus or have you other Cyrtodactylus: 100-146 days?

    Just picked up my first land snails on Tuesday. Will finish setting them up later today. These are about 1 inch diameter adults. I will wait until they lay eggs and then place the egg masses in a different container. Don't know how long the snail eggs will take to hatch.
