Today, Bear’s gecko Ally, (because she is an Albino leopard gecko) gifted us with two eggs. Unfortunately, she was not the first of our female geckos to lay a pair of eggs. Spotty had that distinction, but due to my Leopard Gecko learning curve, otherwise known as my failure to provide a nesting box in time, she was forced to lay her eggs on the floor of the hide, where it promptly dried up. We saved the poor little shriveled things so that it would not be in vain—but for science! And what can I say? At least I learned a thing or two in the process.
Around 11PM I transferred the eggs out of the nesting box and into their own incubation cup and we are just doing our best to keep the eggs warm and in a humid environment while we wait—for 40-60 days! In the meantime, I have an incubator on order for our next batch of eggs from Spotty which we hope to see in about 3-5 weeks.
Keep your fingers crossed!
Exciting! We can’t wait to see baby Geckos!
What an interesting educational perspective!
That’s one cool lesson!
