    Default you never realize

    just how tiny baby geckos are until you see them in person!

    my mourning gecko laid eggs apparently. i couldn't believe i even managed to see these two, but it was almost like i knew something was different in the tank. years of gecko raising and breeding is getting to me!

    That is unreal. It doesn't even look real! How do you handle something so tiny? That is so adorable!

    The second pic is an amazing shot.

    thanks guy, love my new phone it takes pretty nice pictures

    they're very fast, but they're so small that they still only go short distances. just have to be reaaally careful with them, but i have small hands so its not too bad.

    I knew mournings were tiny, but this really brings a new meaning to the word! How cute.
    Currently keeping Correlophus ciliatus, Pantherophis guttatus, Trachemys scripta elegans, and Hemitheconyx caudicinctus.
    I have also kept Phelsuma klemmeri, Eublepharis macularius, Rhacodactylus auriculatus, and Lampropeltis getula californiae.

    my adult is actually decently sized, so when i saw these little ones in the tank i snagged them. they're so small when they hatch they barely make a whole mouthful for her!
