    Default conjoined twins

    Hi everyone..i donít usually post on here but I though Iíd share this. These guys are conjoined at the head. The egg started to goo and deflate so my husband opened the egg to see if he could save the hatchling (we have been able to before). What he found was these two. Very sad..poor little things

    Could you clarify? Conjoined geckos will hatch out of the same egg...it's not like two eggs were stuck together or anything like that.

    This is the first one I've seen like this. Normally they will have two heads or something, but this one is intriguing how it is connected all the way down the sides and has two tails and everything. Weird.

    thanks guys..it is really sad. and yes they hatched out of one egg. they each had completly separate bodies..just attached at the head..each with one eye. it would have been so cool to have twins..i am very sad that this happened to my babies

    So sorry about the babies. Matt Parks had a cojoined set a couple years ago-if I recall, they lived a week or two.
