    I'm pretty sure this is another Lucille and L'il Abner baby, but there is the tiniest chance that it's from Sunny and whoever she was gravid by before I rescued her.. just a slim chance....

    The other egg should hatch any time between tonight and 2 - 7 days ..but they usually hatch within a day or so, if not both at once!

    It's a Crested Gecko... or R. ciliatus

    They can get up to 10" or so, STL ...that's total length with tail included. The more I look at this baby, the more I am sure it's Lucille and L'il Abner's kidlet ...the "tiger" morph is pretty evident now (and both parents are/were 'tigers')

    I think this little one will be called Jeffy ...for a good friend of mine, in the hobby ..and the clutchmate is probably going to be named after his wife ..if she doesn't mind. [​IMG]

    Still waiting for the other eggo, though...


    Thanks!

    [​IMG] ...little Tamarind was definitely yelling at me!! [​IMG]

    theOEGBman.. I have older pics of the adults, but I only have these babies' Momma right now (I lost 4 of my very special ones ...including the father.. to the ant problem here). Lucille is my only adult ..then 2 juveniles ..and four babies ....with four more eggs in the incubator.

    Feijoa again ...lots of little freckles and stripes

    I should've left this one to sleep.. Tamarind is a little spitfire!

    [​IMG]
    Defiance on a child's face ..it's the same everywhere!

    Temper tantrums, too...



    The older babies.. Frebert and Sakinah

    Sakinah is the one with the big spot on the booty

    On the move...

    They are just shy of 4 weeks now..

    I'll dig up a pic of Daddy Abner and Momma Lucille and post back. If you'd like to see past geckos (I've since traded, sold or were victims of the ants), let me know...
