Gecko eggs

We woke up yesterday morning to find two eggs in the gecko enclosure.  We have a pair of Crested geckos in there along with a Gargoyle gecko.  The Cresties are apparently one of each gender because they've obviously mated.  The one atop the rock is missing his tail - he shed it when we put a piece of decoration on him on accident.  It doesn't seem to bother him though.  As far as my referring to him in the male gender, my 10 year old assures me that he can tell which one is what gender.  I'll take him at his word.  He was musing what a cross between the Crested and Gargoyle geckos would look like; he does love his critters!

  1. 10 year olds know so much sometimes - I know nothing about geckos

  2. I've not seen gecko eggs since childhood! They used to run wild where I'd grown up. This takes me back.

  3. Gerald, I couldn't agree more! When I was 10 I pretty much knew what berries were safe to eat and... no, that's about it.

    Lulu, this is a first for me. I've had fish bear young, but this seems completely different.
