    Thanks, Aliza.

    They're too jumpy to do a group hatchling shot like this:

    At least for now this borrowed photo will have to suffice:

    Goodness! That is a lot of little chirpies Elizabeth! They are adorable little babies, I especially love the video of the reaction to his own voice.

    It certainly is, Cory! They've been hatching mid-month since February. I've got 10 good eggs to go and I'm not sure whether either female is finished laying. I wonder how many will be male. Pretty soon I may have a real chorus.

    That very video sparked my interest in this genus and particular species.

    Is it only males who vocalize? What type of housing do they require? It appears to be a live planted vivarium I'm guessing being from S.E. Asia they need higher relative humidity.
    The volume that little fellow produces is remarkable given his size. He looks like he is no bigger than Apollo's tail, but not nearly as big around

    Males vocalize pretty loudly! I've infrequently heard my females peep softly.

    They don't have "sticky feet", so giving them something to grip lets them fully explore their homes.

    My younger male weighs 7.8 grams. He seems to have maxed out. The 5.5 yo male is larger. Both females weigh 10+ grams.

    I keep 3 of my 4 adult Cyrtodactylus peguensis zebraicus on layered substrates, so that I can periodically water the substrate. That keeps the relative humidity somewhat higher than in my bedroom. It keeps the topmost substrate layer relatively dry. I spray the enclosures several times per week.
    • Bottom layer ~ a couple inches of Hydroton clay culture balls
    • Mid layer ~ weedblocker cloth: a porous black cloth that lets water pass through
    • Top layer ~ well-washed fine grade orchid bark in my 20 gallon regular; Eco Earth's coco fiber in 2 of 3 smaller habitats.

    In the 5.5 yo male's 20 gallon regular enclosure I have
    • 1 cork bark flat on 2/3rds of the back
    • 3 long narrow cork bark tunnels
    • 3 inch diameter water dish
    • 8 ounce clear glass food dish with vertical sides
    • 2 small coconut shell hides
    • 2 large Exo Terra twisty vines -- very important for climbing!
    • 1 philodendron plastic hanging plant with small leaves
    • Silk hanging plants with variegated leaves. Some silk plants are suspended from the screen top.

    All the enclosures sit in my upstairs gecko room/bedroom. Round the clock temperatures during the summer range from 71 - 80ish*F (21.7*C - 26.7*C). At night the actual temperature may drop to 69*F (20.6*C). The room's thermostat is set for 71*F year round.

    May 18-22: Rest in peace hatchling #8
    • Mom = ID2 (same dad)
    • 1st of 2 egg clutch
    • "Popped" out of the egg
    • Maybe even 1/2 the yolk remained inside the egg. The yolk was not attached to the hatchling.
    • Seemed to be eating 1/8 inch crickets
    • Did poop once
    • Not doing well
    • Poorly coordinated - ataxic
    • Very weak and inactive

    May 21: + 9th hatchling
    • Mom = ID2 (same dad)
    • 2nd of 2 egg clutch
    • Some yolk remained inside the egg
    • Seemingly vibrant like the 7 others who are thriving


    Does anyone know why sometimes more or less yolk remains? Many of the first ones hatched when the yolk was completely gone.
