  • 32 babies died.

    Found out today I lost 34 geckos. most of my babies. Including my pretty full pinstripe hatchling, the second full pin I ever produced.

    3 in a bin died the second day, 17 were lost when a circuit breaker blew this weekend - no ac. Another 14 today, and I found eight of them. He said it was the heat, but everybody was dry, and many were severally dehydrated. One tank of sub adults were so bad, most would have died tomorrow. It just seems odd that three of the baby bins were fine, when most of the others lost at least half of the babies, age of the baby in the bin did not seem to be a factor. No adult died. two young adults did. I am rambling.

    anyway, I am just sick about it. It was not like I went on vacation, I was down helping my 91 year old grandmother move. I left Wednesday came back Thursday. He seemed to know what he was doing. I am just lost.

              Roxie! I am so sorry. This has happened to too many! I was just thinking today of when Brandie B lost almost all of hers due to heat.
              Just makes me sick to my stomach.
              If there is anything I can do please let me know!
              So so sorry!

                  I don't hardly come here anymore due to access problems and life. But I see this and it breaks my heart. I am so sorry.
                  I pray that he did not cause this due to negligence on top of ac issues.
                  I think 5 species of geckos is enough! Lets not talk about the snakes!

                      Wow in only one day(one day or was it over one week that they were under someone else's care?)! That's horrible! I'm so sorry to hear that . It must've been mostly the heat because one day is too soon for someone to kill that many or any at all without doing anything to them. I suppose if they weren't keeping them misted well enough in the heat that would've been a factor for sure but I feel bad for the person watching them as well. If the heat wouldn't have been an issue your little guys would still be alive today. The caretaker must've been devastated as well . I know I would feel awful(worse than awful!) if I just didn't know any better on a really hot day .
                      Best wishes and I hope the rest recover!
