  • Larkspur <3

    Two nights ago Greg and I were misting the geckos and when Greg was checking on the babies he found Larkspur dead in her enclosure. Just the previous night during feeding we had checked on EVERYONE, and there wasn't anything suspicious going on at all, she was acting normally, jumping around, there was poop in the cage, no mold, and she had eaten some of her CGD that evening as well....I don't know what went wrong, and I'm not sure if that makes it worse or not she was our only full pin we hatched this season, and was Greg's favorite hatchling I guess it could have been something developmental, or something, but I'll never know all the other babies are fine and we're keeping an extra close eye on them. I feel like a horrible person, like it's my fault...I've tried thinking of everything it could have been care wise, but I can't come up with anything. She was only 3.8 grams

    I'm sorry Larkspur

            I'm so sorry for your loss. Please don't blame yourself - sometimes nature just has its way and all the love and care in the world couldn't change the outcome. Sending good vibes your way that the rest of your babies stay happy and healthy.
