    Iv had problems with mine. The first hatchling would not eat mealworms so i had to buy small locusts and crickets, which it would eat straight away. Its appetite has improved and now seems to eat mealworms.

    But now im having the same trouble with the new hatchlings. I obviously didnt feed them until they shed their first skin (although i only saw evidence of one shedding) but they dont seem interested in mealworms either. I even stuck a nymph dubia in with them and they havnt touched them.

    I wont worry about it just yet but im wondering if there is anything i can do to get them onto the mealworms. I dont want to have to feed all my hatchlings locusts and crickets as its gonna be too expensive. Id rather just give them the odd one.
    yeah they eat mealworms an dubia so far, one guy took about a week or more to start on the mealworms but he took to dubia at about a week, he had some shed issues as well tho. all others are having no issues with mealworms.. i do have crickets now too but i ordered really small ones by mistake and so im now having to grow them out

    Since babies tend to bite at anything that gets in the way of their mouths, try holding them an poking a mealworm at them. There's a good chance they'll bite it and hopefully decide that they like them.

    I tried that with the first hatchling. I cut a mealworm wo its guts were spilling out and touched its nose with it to see if it would stimulate it but just kept backing off. I guess i could try with the new ones also.

    I put some small crickets in with the 2 new ones. One pounced straight on one. The other had no interest. But it is worth noting that the one who showed no interest, is the one who i have seen no evidence of shedding. Is it possible for 1 to take a lot longer to ahed its first skin.

    So you just kept at the mealworms with the if you get hungry enough you will eat them attitude? I was like that for the first wrek ot so with the first hatchling but started getting worried about its growth so caved and got crickets anf locusts. Maybr i should have been more persistant?

    we tried cuttin a head or two off an wipin the guts on the lips, he licked em off but we wern't able to get him to take one.. once we offered dubias he eat those just fine and then started eating mealworms.. he took forever to shed tho an needed assistance.

    I think it's not an albino, but that just as the other ones you hatched whose black was more of a brown and who ended up being super hypos, this one is probably headed in the same direction.

    @acpart was gonna ask your opinion on this little guy who i believe hatched without eyes.. but it seems you have already answered it for me

    ♦ blindness: Some geckos hatch without eyes. A blind gecko can have a reasonable quality of life if kept in a smaller than usual enclosure, taking care not to re-arrange the furniture. It will likely require hand-feeding at least at first, but may be able to locate feeders in a bowl by smell and function more independently.

    thanks!

    @Elizabeth Freer

    I'm sorry that little guy has no eyes. Here's hoping that all your other hatchlings will be juuuuust fine, Josh!
