My common house gecko
laid 2 eggs tonight! We thought we were buying two females, but one turned out to be male LOL! We are so excited about the little ones!
I have been searching online for info on how to care for the eggs, but all the sites say the same 2 sentences. I need more than 2 sentences! All I found out was that they incubate in 50-65 days, they need 88•F incubation temp and to mark the top of the egg with a marker so that you can make sure it stays upright.
But I can't find info on:
1) The best/easiest way to get the eggs from the tank without damaging them
2) Is that a constant 88•?
3) What humidity level do the eggs need in incubation?
4)Once they hatch, and they are about 2" long, can they immediately go back into the cage with the others?
5) What should we feed the hatchlings?
6) What if they hatch while we're @ work? Will they roast in the 88• Environment before we get home?
7) Our big lizard/gecko cage is also home to a blue anole, a green anole, 2 mediterranean house geckos, and a long tail lizard. What would happen if we didn't remove the eggs at all? Should we fear any of the other cagemates harming the eggs? What about crickets? Will they try to eat the eggs? If we don't remove them at all, do you think they will survive normal cage temps?
We would appreciate any helpful info you other reptile lovers could offer, as we are super excited about our baby house geckos! =)
