 Caring for Hatchlings

Once the Gargoyle Gecko eggs have hatched, it's essential to provide optimal care for the hatchlings to ensure their health and development.

Caring of newborn Gargoyle Gecko

  • Housing: Transfer the hatchlings to a separate rearing enclosure to provide them with adequate space and environmental conditions. A smaller enclosure with appropriate heating and humidity levels is ideal for ensuring their well-being.
  • Temperature and Humidity: Maintain stable temperature and humidity levels within the rearing enclosure. Aim for a temperature range of 75-80°F (24-27°C) during the day and slightly cooler temperatures at night. Humidity should be kept around 70-80% to prevent dehydration.
  • Substrate: Choose a suitable substrate for the rearing enclosure, such as paper towels or coconut fiber bedding. Avoid substrates that may pose a risk of ingestion or impaction for the hatchlings.
  • Feeding: Offer a varied diet consisting of appropriately sized insects, such as small crickets, fruit flies, and mealworms. Additionally, provide commercially available gecko diet supplements to ensure they receive essential nutrients.
  • Water: Provide a shallow dish of fresh water for the hatchlings to drink from. Ensure the water is changed regularly to prevent contamination and maintain cleanliness.
  • Handling: Minimize handling of the hatchlings to reduce stress and allow them to acclimate to their new environment. When handling is necessary, do so gently and avoid excessive restraint.
  • Monitoring: Keep a close eye on the hatchlings' health and behavior. Monitor their feeding habits, growth rate, and overall activity levels to ensure they are thriving. Seek veterinary attention if you notice any signs of illness or abnormal behavior.
  • Growth and Development: Track the growth and development of the hatchlings over time. Document milestones such as shedding, weight gain, and color changes to monitor their progress.
