1st Cresteds hatched!!

Postby Mitton » Mon Dec 13, 2010 9:36 pm

We finally had some hatchlings other than Pythons at my house. My wife's Cresties 1st batch of eggs hatched last week. We were down at the coast on holiday and my sister was egg sitting for us as we only expected them to hatch around the 20th, they hatched on the 8th.
We picked them up this afternoon and I quickly snapped some pics with my phone in very bad light, but you can still see that they are just the cutest little things.
The female dropped 2 more eggs on the same day as when these hatched and then we have another 1 egg that should hatch in about 2 weeks.

Sorry for the quality

Congrats. They are lovely.

Sorry, missed this post.
We feed them the same as the adults, just Purity baby food mixed with Crested Gecko Diet.

Can't crested geckos eat insects or do also need special food?

They do well on only Purity and CGD but we do feed them crickets a few times a week, they love crickets!

MJ, most pet shops sell CGD but there has been a shortage for the last few months so you don't always find it. Best to phone around and see who has.
