    Use a clean finger, dip it in water and put a drop on each eye area of this gecko. It's possible that the gecko has absent or poorly developed eyelids and may actually have eyes. It's hard to tell with these little ones. I have hatched a number of geckos that had notched eyelids and by providing moisture for the eyes was able to keep them going. Some of them ended up with better eyelid growth as they matured.

    I think the jury is still out on this one. I hatched a gargoyle once that was missing an eye and the whole thing was missing--eye, eyelid and everything. The eye socket was caved in as well. This one doesn't seem to have any external deformity and when you look down at the head from the top, it has the same dark colored (sometimes it looks greenish on adults) area between the eyes that are the eyeballs seen through the skin. I recommend you moisten the eyes a few times a day and see what develops.

    Do you see some "issue" with RC's left front elbow as he walks -- like an excessive inward bending? Maybe it's just my imagination?

    If you see this too, make sure all his bugs are dusted with D3 calcium at 1 feeding per week. I hope this would be Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3. Repashy's Calcium Plus contains less than 1/2 the D3 Repti Calcium with D3 has.

    he seems to walk normal to me but i'll double check. i do have the zoo med + d3 but whats in the little cup is just calcium. should i just put some of the zoo med in with the repashy in my dusting can?

    I'm hesitant to mix multivitamins. Are you near a PetCo? I think PetCo carries Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3.

    Which Zoo Med with D3 do you have?

    Instead of leaving that supplement in a cup/lid, lightly dust with ReptiVite multivitamins with D3 instead of Repashy's Calcium Plus @ 1 feeding per week -- for RC anyways. Then lightly dust with plain calcium @ 2 other feedings per week. That single dose -- if enough -- should metabolize plain calcium ALL WEEK LONG.

    Are you dusting with Repashy's Calcium Plus on a regular basis or leaving it out for free-range?
