August crested gecko hatchlings!!!

Hopefully this blog will help me to keep track of which geckos hatch when, as i am awful at keeping a calendar...

Here are August's hatchlings, all looking very pretty :)

the only editing done to these photos is a crop, no colour adjustment. Look at the tails on the first two geckos. interesting pattern...

patternless crested gecko, hope this one stays looking nice and vibrant

tiger/brindle crested gecko - really interesting patterning, quite orange when fired :)

flame crested gecko - one of my favourites, great contrast and structure

partial pinstripe black and white crested gecko:

and finally, one of last years babies which hatched out black. Looking a bit grey and boring at the moment, but still very much in the 'ugly duckling' phase, so still not sure what this will look like as an adult.

6 months old:

another baby that hatched very dark:

lastly, another black and white crested baby that hatched out early this year with much more pattern. sadly this little one did not make it. seemed like a nice strong hatchling, I will never be sure why he/she died as I was out of the country at the time for work and left it with a very competent carer. it's an awful experience when any animal dies, I am naturally gutted... it's clutch mate was fine and had no problems.

the top 5 geckos in this post will be available to buy in early October.

thanks for looking,
