I have superworms of all sizes from extremely small to very large. It won't eat the superworm and the superworm just bites my gecko. So I removed it. My adults refuse any kind of worms also. When I forced the calcium it was dry at first and it licked it off it's mouth, then I put some in water and kinda "pasted" it on its mouth and it licked it off.. Seems like just one cricket stresses it out but I'm afraid it's malnourished so I want it to eat.
    I understand what you've said about feeding worms. Waxworms are definitely worth trying to save this little guy's life.

    It's important to get some real food in your hatchling's belly. With that and D3 calcium, he might stand a chance.

    1. His seizures may be random.
    2. Can you maintain good temps in the much smaller cricket container he's in now?
    3. Will he drink water droplets off his mouth or even directly from a syringe or from an eye dropper?
    4. Can you buy Repashy's Grub Pie or Oxbow's Carnivore Care (off Amazon) and make a paste of that?
    5. In the meantime see whether you can buy Gerber's Turkey Baby Food. That's better than Gerber's Chicken Baby Food. That will not harm him.

    His seizures and stiffness is random. And certain things so trigger it also such as stress like when a cricket jumped on him. I'll definitely try baby food also. My funds are not so good because I just came back from vacation and my airline charged me another $700 or I wasn't going to be allowed to leave the country coming home, so I'm screwed. I'll try to syringe feed it D3 calcium also. Thank you for the tips. Under the stress of this I don't think of all the options. I'll try to force a cricket in his mouth that's been covered in d3 also

    You're welcome.

    Have you any supermarkets open right now for Gerber's Turkey Baby Food? Feeding him is urgent and time-sensitive!

    Vitamin D3 is fat soluble. Plain calcium requires D3 in order to be metabolized. That's another reason why spending $5 on a waxworm trial is well worth it. Are you close to some big box store like PetCo?

    Normally a single dose of vitamin D3 sticks around in a gecko's body about 1 week. So, as long as your hatchling is swallowing D3 calcium (barring other problems), only a couple doses might be required to reverse seizures.

    Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3 contains just the right amount of vitamin D3 in most circumstances.

    How is your little hatchling doing?

    If not recovering, we may be able to help the next hatchling thrive.

    It finally ate a couple crickets and with forcing calcium d3 in its mouth looks like its slowly recovering. seizures are lessening. I'm just trying not to stress it out and gave it some more hides and fake plants to feel comfortable ...i feel bad that it's separate from the parents early and seems lonely, but then again I tend to personify my pets, maybe it prefers to be alone. I'll transfer to bigger 10 gal next shed. Thanks again for the help everyone. I'll be more prepared for the others if something goes wrong

    I'm happy to hear your progress!

    I wouldn't worry that your hatchling is alone.

    Don't overdue the D3 calcium, if you're certain it's getting "some" every week.

    How are you doing with tokay-friendly temps in the plastic container?

    For the most part, reptiles are solitary animals, and don't need company. It's OK if he's by himself.

    I transferred the baby to a 10 gallon tank and it's doing great. Temps, humidity is good, I'm now worried about the clutchmate not hatching and it's been a bit over 14 days. The clutchmate was exposed to more sunlight than the one that hatched, so I hope that wasn't a problem. Can this be a normal thing? How can I tell if the egg has gone bad and baby possibly dead... I hope for the best and won't force it open
