    The last Eublepharis hardwickii hatchling of the year is out of the egg.
    69 days of incubation. 4,1g like its sibling.

    So in the end it was still a successful season. Ill be pretty busy taking those update pictures over the next months...

    Congrats rhaco, nice animal. Let me ask you something: do you keep all of them and track their sexes? I have read that E. hardwickii and E. fuscus are more tricky to get males from thant other Eublepharis species. Seems that males need to be incubated in a more exact temperature. Have you checked this?

    Yeah, its a big debate how temperature-dependent sex determination works with Hardwickii (and Fuscus).
    US breeders seem to have more problems hatching males. Some say TSD doesnt work at all with Hardwickii.
    My experience is too little on this. There are some breeders over here in Europe that seem to be very successful hatching male Hardwickii by incubating at 32C.
    My plan was to proof that this year. But my incubator is very old and had some very bad temperature spikes >35C. Thats why I lost 8 out of 12 eggs this season.
    At the end I pulled all the remaining eggs and finished incubation at room temperature.

    I like to keep my hatchlings as long as possible.
    To document their development and to know their sex.
    Well see how my ratio is this year with those incubation temperatures fluctuating from 26 to 35C

    Nice, thanks fo your answer. I perceive the same with these european breeders. Even I am not in EU, I often check european classifieds to see whats new and on, and I always see collections overcrowded with females of these species and less than a half dozen breeders that maybe cracked up these and sells only-male or high-male stock. Just wanted to know if incubating temperature info on fuscus and hardwickii are being spread.

    Well, the info is out there.
    The guys from BION Terrarium Center mention the 32C incubation temperature to get males on their website and in a YouTube video.
    Like I said, I have yet to successfully prove that temperature. But maybe other breeders should try it too.


    While were at it, here come some more Update photos of this years (still unsexed) hatchlings:
