Found these the other night in the peguensis viv. Any incubation tips would be very much appreciated
Thanks a lot for the info, I have the incubat or set at around 70 deg, so hopefully they should be fineWhat your doing looks pretty good, just make sure to keep the temps in the low to mid 70's. 78 degrees is about the max that I would allow with these eggs. I used a 5" high plastic food storage containor with a few small holes at the top. I hatched out a few pegu's on slightly damp coco fiber, it took about 100 days for them to hatch. But from what I heard from others, it can take anywhere from 3-5 months. Good luck!
I bought them as Peguensis, but I have read a thread on here about there not being any Peguensis. So they may be zebraicus - I would be interested to know either way, if you know a way to tell the differenceAre these C.p.peguensis or zebraicus?
Thanks for the info on the difference between them JimmyThese 3 specimens are all C. p. zebraicus. And very good looking ones if I might add! The way you tell the difference is all in the pattern. C. peguensis peguensis has spots covering its entire body. C. peguensis zebraicus has spots only on the top of the head, and the back, they have white stripes on the sides. Great pics
Hopefully in a few months time I will be posting pics of the hatchlings, fingers crossedThanks for the identification, Jimmy.
Hoorah for Julie:biggrin:!!! Keep up the great breeding. Look forward to pictures of hatchlings and hopefully a pair of my own someday soon.
Any reasoning or fact based information on why people are scared to let their Cyrto. eggs get any warmer than the mid 70's??? I would have no trouble letting these eggs go 78-80'F as long as there is some sort of night time drop. AS long they aren't consistently exposed to higher temps for extended periods of time (i.e.82'F+). Just curious why I keep seeing this. These animals experience temps in the low 80's in their natural habitat quite frequently. I also don't prefer to directly incubated "hard shelled" eggs on wet substrate. A milkcap filled with sand placed on a moist incubation medium will help keep the egg/s from going bad as frequently. I think this is why most people breeding Uroplatus have issues incubating their eggs. What you have to remember is Most geckos don't bury their eggs very deep in the wild, so they experience a little bit of "wet" being on top but you have to also realize they are also going to dry out a lot quicker (than if they were in deep soil) after the rain has subsided causing the "upper" portion of the soil to be relatively dry with the moisture coming primarily from the air humidity. Just my 2 cents...
