    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!

    They eat cuttlebone? How do you fix that for them? Break it into chunks? Shave it? Crush it up in a mortar and pestle? I think it's fantastic that the ladies will eat that so readily. What a great idea!
    In the end, only kindness matters.

    A thoughtful EU gecko breeder shared this "secret" when I started up with two new Cpz females.

    I shave cuttlebone into chunks and powder with a pocket knife.

    Just don't break the cuttlebone into chunks. The shell that accompanies it is probably too tough to digest!

    Wow! Congratulations on yet another new li'l one! Your breeders are certainly busy this year . May all of the babies grow up to be healthy, and to pass on their genetics to the next generation when the time comes.

    Thanks so much! I hope additional generations will do just as well.
