    Default White line babies


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    When the country started lockdowns, the pet store sold all their reptiles at 50 percent off. I bought almost everything. So i ended up with white line geckos among other things. I put them into a 72x18x24 tank that i had previously set up. This was meant as a temporary enclosure while i set up a more appropriately sized one. About a week later i went to move them into a smaller enclosure but i noticed eggs stuck to the glass. So i left them in the 6 foot long terrarium. Now i have 5 eggs that i knew about. There were evidently more that i couldn't see. I have seen 2 babies in there. I have read that the parents will look after their eggs and their young. I was curious if i should move the babies to a smaller enclosure so it is easier for them to find food. The parents are doing quite well in the big tank. There is an abundance of isopods and springtails. I drop crickets in on a regular basis. I put in fruit baby food a few times a week. There are tons of plants. I used some tile and silicone to build a water area when i set up the terrarium. This was long before i bought the geckos. I have a small black knobbed map turtle that lives in the water end. This enclosure was not meant for geckos but they are doing well in it. I cant move the parents since they keep laying eggs stuck to the glass and look after the eggs. Should I move the babies? Or leave them with their parents? I cant find very good info on white lines.

    Welcome to Geckos Unlimited!

    Sometimes adults eat their babies. I don't know about these.

    IF you look near the top there's an empty search box on the right side. Type in Gekko vittatus. More links will appear. Here's what i found.
