    Here are some new photos as they are now 200 days old:

    And as I never posted this here, I will upload two photos of this awesome original painting of all the Eublepharis species by the artist Emily Burke. The original stays with me but she has prints available on her website: All Products · Emily Burke Artwork · Online Store Powered by Storenvy
    (I hope it's ok to advertise a little. But she is a very talented artist and I think a lot of Eublepharis keepers would love a print of this special artwork!)

    Update at 7 months of age:

    eublepharis hardwickii 7 mo HW-001.jpg

    In addition I want to share some information about how Eublepharis hardwickii lives in the wild.
    Little information on the husbandry of this beautiful and shy Eublepharis species can be found on the internet let alone in books.
    A little cooler and at higher humidity than the other Eublepharis species seems to be the general consensus.
    But what it the right temperature? What is the right humidity?
    Trying to answer those questions you would have to study the animals in the wild. I asked someone who travelled several times to India to research Eublepharis hardwickii.
    I asked him about his findings and he allowed me to share them.
    To be clear: These are not my observations, so I wont be able to answer any questions about the following information.
    I just share it here because it could be of use for a lot of people here:

    - Adult animals were mainly active in June - August during raining season
    - Females found at that period were still not gravid so it can be assumed that they lay their eggs later in the year
    - No freshly hatched babies were found so it is unclear when babies hatch in the wild
    - All juveniles found in June and July already had 12 - 15 gram and were probably hatchlings of the previous year
    - The main rainfall and therefore most humid climate is from June until September; humidity gets up to 80 - 100% during these times
    - In the winter its dry as it rains very rarely
    - Wild Eublepharis hardwickii are strictly nocturnal with main activity from 7pm-10pm when its drizzling. If it is too dry or too wet they wont come out
    - They were only found in the forests, never near roads or cities
    - They were found in forests at 600-800 meters altitude
    - The temperature in the forest during their main activity months was never above 30C and was lowering to 22-24C at night
    - From December until March no animals were found
    - The coldest month is January, around 20C at daytime, lowering to 13C at night
    - In March during the day 25 - 27 C, at night still lowering to 13 - 15C

    Everyone can draw their own conclusions from this.
    What I learned from this:
    - The hot area in the terrarium should not be over 30C and even lower at night when the animals are active
    - Humidity varies a lot in the course of the year: during their active months they like high humidity but the terrarium should not be too wet
    - During hibernation you do not need to spray them that much

    That does go along with what I've observed with my single female E. hardwickii. She has 3 areas of hides and almost never chooses the warm hides. Last month she was in the coldest area and didn't eat much.

    Hibernation is over for my Eublepharis hardwickii breeders, so I took a quick mother and daughter photo.
