A random splattering of questions I have.
Ok I have had Char for about 2 months and I just have a few questions.
First off, I have seen alot of people taking their geckos outside especially for pictures. Now Char is still a baby by all means (3-5ish grams, scale is on its way) but he is a jumpy little bugger and I would NEVER risk loosing him on the lawn. Is it really safe to do that.
Another question I was having is I use vitamin water lids when I'm feeding Char. I put in 1/4 teaspoon of powder and then 2 1/4 teaspoons of water. I was reading and everyone talks about 'lick marks'. What is everyone feeding in that it is big enough to have marks in it? Mine is deep enough even when he eats there is no physical evidence in the lid (just in his poo). Should I be feeding him less? I am definitely throwing quite a bit away ever 2 days but I don't have anything smaller to make the measurements with! Can I make a large amount then spoon out like half a 1/4 of the mix or is that a bad plan?
Another question I've had is on breeding. What is a normal number of eggs laid? After years of breeding fish who store sperm in them for months and months when u breed Crested geckos one breeding = one set of eggs? If/when I ever choose to breed I am worried about homing everyone. Another question on hatch-lings, do they eat CGD straight out of the egg or is something supplemented? How much do newborns normally weigh?
How long (roughly) does it normally take a crested to go from first born to fully grown?
And more of an individual question where did you get YOUR first crested from?
Thanks for answering all my random questions!
