    Default Microscopic Hatchling



    Lygodactylus conradti

    These little things make me so nervous...I have no idea what to do, do help him survive. Flightless fruit flies and CGD are provided, and fingers are crossed!

    Nicely done! Let me know if you want to get rid of any when they are a bit bigger.

    How did you even find that tiny little thing?

    He's hanging out inside the vent area there, on this zoomed 12 X 12. He's still there as of this morning, even though I didn't see him all day yesterday. He seems unsure about the flightless fruit flies, so I'm considering trying to hand-feed him some CGD on a toothpick. Worth a try. Success with newly hatched Lygos has been about 50/50...either they eat, or they don't. It's better since I set up this hatching enclosure, but they're still awfully delicate little things. Once they get started well, they're pretty hardy, it's just the first couple of weeks.

    What is the care like for these? I don't think I've read about them before.

    They're in a ZooMed cube, with moss, cork bark, humidity kept up, and UVB light. The light, though fluorescent, provides sufficient heat, which during the day ranges from 75 to 80F air and 90F right under the light. I've successfully raised L. williamsi, L. kimhowelli, and lots of mourning geckos in this viv. I spray twice a day, for water.

    He's still alive, but he's still tiny...my fingers are still crossed for him.
