    • 2nd of 2 egg clutch
    • Some yolk remained
    • 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.
    I don't know about the species you're working with, but I've had leopard geckos hatch out on the early side and small with a yolk sac and also on the late side and large with a yolk sac!

    Aww, I'm sorry for the loss of one of your hatchlings . Even though we all know that infant mortality in most creatures tends to be high, it's always sad to lose a baby. All of the promise and potential unrealized....

    May all of your other babies grow up strong and healthy, and pass their genes on to a new generation in their own good time. 😀

    Thanks so much, IrishEyes! These are really fun little guys. Their patterns are very interesting.

    FedEx just delivered their suppers.

    Congratulations! Your pairs are sure going to town in the reproduction dept. . Are you having to supplement your girls with extra calcium?

    Thanks, IrishEyes!

    Feed hatchlings just about daily.
    • Monday ~ lightly dust all crickets with Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3
    • Wednesday ~ lightly dust all crickets with plain - no D3 calcium carbonate
    • Friday ~ lightly dust all crickets with Zoo Med's Reptivite multivitamins without D3

    Feed moms and the dad 3x per week.
    • Dust all crickets as above.
    • In addition, for each mom I provide a shallow dish of shaved cuttlebone. They devour the cuttlebone chunks and powder!
