So I became interested in Mourning geckos because of the fact that that they are parthogenic (self cloning)
I purchased three to see how I liked them and found that they are adorable. They click and chirp. The sound is quiet but distinct.
Fast forward- I joined a Mourning gecko group to learn more information. Shortly after joining I saw a post for a woman who wanted to sell her collection.
Naturally, I jumped on the opportunity. I ended up with over 50 geckos ( around 30 adults, 12 juveniles, and 20+ hatchlings. Gads of eggs- we will see what hatches)
Here is a photo recording of what I brought home and the clean up:
|Fresh from unpacking the car. This ended up being way more than I had anticipated. The more I opened boxes the better it got. I received so many supplies that I hadn't expected.|
|There were two terrariums with 6 adults each. They were a bit messy and required a full cleaning. All glass was scrubbed and plants had a toothbrush scrubbing. In a later picture you will see how many eggs were removed and placed in a bowl. |
|And the cleaning begins.|
|There were batches of eggs. I left these batches but the loose eggs in the substrate were removed.|
|We sorted the deli cups - eggs to the right, hatchlings, juveniles and the last two rows on the right held adults.|
|Loose eggs from the substrate.|
|A hatchling in a hatching cup.|
|Final result- three terrariums with adults. Two small terrariums and a nano with juveniles. About 10 deli cups with hatchlings and a egg terrarium. I am excited to see an egg hatch.|
