    I agree ^ ^ ^ let him rest quietly, & keep him on damp towels- when I've had a snake in this condition, they'll drink drops of water from my finger, but I don't know if this guy will or not- but if this takes a while, maybe mist him so he can drink off his face, at least. I think approaching him with your finger to drink would just stress him way too much.

    Re: Leopard gecko breeding questions

    He's not doing much, but I'm not expecting him to of course. Do you think the vermiculite on his yolk sac will be an issue?

    No, I'd leave it alone. (If you sprayed a tiny stream of water to wash it off, you could, but I think that would scare him, & his panic reaction could prove fatal- he could pull himself open.)

    Re: Leopard gecko breeding questions

    Okay, thanks. I already did put him in a little warm water this morning, do you think he'll have issues from that? He didn't really doo much, just sat there.

    I don't think the water would have caused a problem. My recommendation is just to close the lid and check once or twice a day. It's hard to do but it will give him the best chances so he's not stressed. It might take a few days or a week for him to fully absorb the yolk sac. The vermiculite won't be a problem. I think they just drop the outside of it anyways, I'm pretty sure they don't think they absorb/eat it.

    Also agreeing with the above. Moist paper towels in the incubator and as little stress as possible. He should either absorb a little more or it will drop off on it's own when the body is ready.

    Re: Leopard gecko breeding questions

    Alright, thank you! Man, Iím worried. I know thereís nothing more I can do, but still. When should he start eating? 3 days after hatching or 3 days after the yolk is finished?

    Not until well after the yolk detaches. Don't offer until then either- if you normally offer 3 days after hatching, my guess would be to wait until 3 days after yolk detaches. See? Always patience-

    Re: Leopard gecko breeding questions

    Great, thanks! Last night I checked on him and the yolk was smaller and was detached. I took it out and replaced the bloody paper towels. He did survive the night, so hopefully he can do that 2 more times before he starts eating live food.
