lol, had you guys going there.
no, not that kind, well, kinda.
a pic of our new arrival. a baby williamsi electric blue day gecko (Lygodactylus Williamsi).
he is one day old. our first baby gecko, /thumbs_up.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumbsup:" border="0" alt="thumbs_up.gif" />

they normally lay 2-4 eggs, but as this was her first mating, i think they can lay one to two.
she looks very gravid again, so fingers crossed more eggs.
they take about 90 days to hatch, this wee guy came out after only 62 days.
as you can see from the milk bottle top, he isn't very big at all.

Well done Keith missed this before! Do you have to remove the eggs to hatch them?

Cake or death?

no Matt. they lay the eggs high in the vivarium, usually behind leaves etc (as was the case here). they do not tend to bother the young intentionally, but can harm them or even eat them if they are hungry. so best to remove the young when they hatch. some peeps suggest covering the eggs with a polystyrene or plastic cup to protect the eggs, but we managed without having to do that.

So they just lay them and leave them? No broodcare?
