Gecko hatch report - Day 361

    All about Gecko eggs

    Leopard Gecko

    Like most other reptile eggs, Leopard Gecko eggs do not need to be continuously turned. This means the parent does not need to care for them in the same way that a bird would.

    In fact, turning a reptile egg could be fatal for the embryo inside. The baby Leopard Geckos will use their egg teeth to slit open the eggshell and poke their heads out to take their first breath of fresh air. They can then rest for about an hour before fully emerging. We will let our Geckos find their feet in the incubator before moving them to another vivarium with their brothers and sisters.
