We know this year’s 2018 leopard gecko hatchling update is late, and we do apologize. A spike in workload during the past few months got us very busy. But never fear, the pictures are here. We know how much you love looking at gecko pictures. We hope you enjoy what we have to show you in this article below.
2018 Leopard Gecko Hatchling Update – Before & After
One of the fun things we like to do is to show you the before & after pictures. In this case pictures of the gecko hatchlings right out of the eggs, and what they look like 2-3 months later. It is always interesting to see the changes they go through in such short time. Without further ado, let’s get right to it.
The eggs have hatched, and hatchlings have grown up enough for us to start posting our 2018 leopard geckos for sale. We have many leopard gecko hatchlings and juveniles for sale. Each week, batches of new geckos will be posted on our available leopard geckos for sale page. These will include 2018 hatches, proven breeder releases, as well as free pet geckos. Please check back often to see if we have your dream gecko.

Hatchling Update September 18th 2017
Our hatchling racks are at near full capacity. The way we handle new leopard gecko hatchlings is we leave them be and allow them to eat and grow for at least 2-3 months. These early months are crucial to their development and health. Gecko hatchlings that don’t eat well early on could develop metabolic bone disease (MBD), or other physical developmental issues such as being smaller and underdeveloped. This is why even though we know people are eager to purchase these cute baby geckos, we do our best to not bother them too much during the first few months.
But as promised, we know folks like to see more gecko pictures. We have plenty of hatchling pictures to share with you during this hatchling update. First we’d like to show you a couple of before & after pictures. Here’s a radar female born on 7-3-2017:
It has been 3 years since we introduced Ares to the world, remember this post. Since then we’ve had some challenges finding suitable females to go with Ares. People have been asking us to update on his progress so here it is.
We’ve tried no less than 6 super giant females with Ares, all but 1 have rejected him due to his size. I mean he is 12 inches long, 170g, the largest female we have in our collection is around 120g. So there are sizable differences between Ares and potential female breeders.
Introducing Ares, the largest super giant leopard gecko in our collection, one of the largest super giants in the world. Weighing in at 170g and 12 inches long. He’s a super giant mack snow raptor with double solid ruby red eyes. Extremely docile and calm, he is going to be a great breeder for us.
Super Giant X Super Giant = 100% Super Giant
Super Giant X Giant = 50% Super Giant / 50% Giant
Super Giant X Normal = 100% Giant
Giant X Giant = 25% Super Giant, 50% Giant, 25% Normal
Giant X Normal = 50% Giant / 50% Normal
Our cat just had to make an appearance in the video, you’ll see him towards the end of the video. His name is Cairo, breed is Egyptian Mau, and he’s almost 2 years old. I thought about editing it out but it’s something that you can’t plan for even if you script it, so I figured to leave him in the video for giggles 🙂
