    • Mom = ID2 (same dad)
    • 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. 😀
    In the end, only kindness matters.
