    Default First Uroplatus Hatchling


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    After quite a bit of me wigging out thinking this would never happen, my first uro just hatched last night about 6:30. I checked the incubator, went upstairs and got a piece of pizza, walked back down the the herp room and there it was.

    This pic is a few minutes after hatching, before the first shed. I was surprised with how agile and alert the hatchling is.


    Since I've been keeping uroplatus, I've lost animals, had sick ones, treated for coccidia and roundworms, loved it and felt like giving up... sometimes not very far apart. But seeing this little guy was HUGE for me.

    Jadrig, Luevelvet and T-Rexx provided a lot of guidance during the past year when I asked about all kinds of different stuff. I think the successful establishment of Uroplatus in the hobby is very dependent on experienced keepers sharing their knowledge with new guys, so thanks guys. I don't think I would have hatched this animal without your help.

    Thanks guys. Here's a day after pic. I'm really surprised how it just looks like a miniature adult. I'm loving that great big tail and the chalk sacs.

    Thanks, I'm still waiting on the clutchmate. For some reason the wait's not so hard now...

    although I am checking the incubation tub at three minute intervals...
