    Sad but interesting.
    Did they live at all or did you cut them from the egg? (Just curious).

      i would have them preserved, anything to get the kiddies interested in sciencey stuff, their short lives would not be wasted

        Very interesting... I have rarely seen this happen with crested geckos. Thanks for sharing.

          So they suffered from Thoracopagus ( form of conjoined twin). The one with the deformed head was not moving and the egg was piped by them , the egg was normal size and was hatching at the same time as the clutchmate. I finished the opening once I saw the face out of the egg and the toungue out ( Most will know what this looks like when a baby does not fully hatch and dies during the hatch ). It happend from a different paring about 2 years ago , so it must be pretty common for large scale breeders.
