    Default Scorpion Tail Pristurus carteri laying and incubation


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello! My first post so wasn’t sure where it should go. I have a pair of Scorpion tailed geckos, Pristurus carteri. My female has started laying eggs in an area I specifically created with the depth of substrate for laying so I could find the eggs however for the second time carefully sifting through I damaged the egg. Does anyone successfully hatch eggs in the vivarium as thinking I may just do that if there is no risk of predation on the young. My concern was being able to control the humidity if I reared separately as I usually just lightly mist the substrate. Thanks for any guidance!

    Welcome to Geckos Unlimited!

    Admin Hilde will probably be here soon. She'll probably relocate your thread to the sub-forum entitled "Other Day Geckos".

    Do an Advanced Search for Pristurus carteri in the box at the upper right corner of the page. You will discover a few other Pristurus carteri threads.

    I'm also working on moving several misplaced P carteri threads to "Other Day Geckos".

    In case you haven't found these particular Sphaerodactylus threads, here they are. The first link includes an AWESOME video by German Pristurus breeder Thomas Ackermann! He's on facebook.

    That’s awesome will check these out as I didn’t find anything about incubation in/out of the viv with the advanced searches I was doing. Thank you!

    It "seems like" you could incubate these eggs in a bottle cap that sits on top of hydrotom or seramis, but seramis is generally a European thing. The substrate you keep your pair on may be suitable to keep that bottle cap on too. ???

    IF you discover a good way, kindly update this thread.

    I have seen references to that and Frank Payne incubates with that method but this was more of its ok to leave them buried where they are laid and maintaining that way. Thanks
