    • Poorly coordinated - ataxic
    • Very weak and inactive

    May 21: + 9th hatchling
    • 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.

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

    FedEx just delivered their suppers.

    Hands-on "wellness" checks on the first of these hatchlings. They are growing like weeds and seem extremely healthy!

    14 Feb 2017: #1 & # 2 hatched

    7 May weights @ ~3 months old
    #1 = 2.0 grams
    #2 = 2.1 grams

    16 July @ 5 months old
    #1 = 4.2 grams
    #2 = 4.2 grams
