    Re: Leopard gecko breeding questions

    Awesome, thanks! He ate more last night and his poop was huge. He's definately doing really well, right now not really viewing me as a source of food but more as a necessary evil.

    Just remind him that you're the caterer.

    Baby leos will usually eat a lot. Depending on the size of the crickets he might even eat up to 15 or so. What some breeders will do (and I've done a couple times with adults, just because I hate dealing with crickets) is put the babies (one at a time of course) in a tub/enclosure without decorations that has dozens of loose crickets in there. The gecko is left in there for about 15 minutes to catch as many crickets as it can. That has the benefit of the gecko eating what it needs, the crickets aren't in the enclosure (which can harm the gecko), and it's a lot simpler to deal with the crickets since they are all only in one area. The gecko should be observed to make sure it's able to catch and eat them and if it doesn't catch enough or it looks like it's still hunting, additional crickets can be fed normally.

    Re: Leopard gecko breeding questions

    Sounds great, thanks! Last night I ran out of store-bought crickets (I had 40 which would usually be enough but he ate wayyy more than I expected) and fed him a few of the ones I bred myself. They're still a little on the small side, but he still ate them.

    Other eggs are still doing fine! Lenetta is gravid with her 4th clutch but I'm guessing at least one will be infertile, just cuz she has already laid so many fertile ones with this pairing.

    This clutch could still be fertile since females can lay an entire year of clutches from one pairing.

    Re: Leopard gecko breeding questions

    Well, you were right! She laid today and both eggs were fertile! This is the most eggs I've ever had in the incubator at once- 5! The oldest is due to hatch in 5 days, and I candled it last night and there were veins and a dark shadow that moved. Can't wait till he hatches!

    Pretty exciting, but "torture" having to wait & wait...

    Yeah, definately. But I guess it's also part of the fun. Just not fun until the egg hatches.

    Re: Leopard gecko breeding questions

    So far there isn't too much new happening with Rex (the hatchling). He is still eating a ton and pooped three times in one day yesterday. shedding regularly, etc. I'm not sure exactly how much he's been drinking, but when I put a water bottle lid in there it's mostly gone like 6 hours later, and his urates have been normal-sized.
