Hi Matt,

Lovely pictures, he/she is just so cute it's lovely seeing them start to eat. :)

Is this the only hatching or do you have more due. :)

Hi Karen
Yes it certainly is :)hes settled well now :)
I candled the eggs last week and no sign so i cracked them open and the smell wasnt very pleasant so im guessing they just werent fertile :(
Good thing tho the same female im 90% sure shes gravid again due to silly weight gain and eating like a horse lol

Very cute and so lovely to see it looking as it should and not all brightly coloured as they are when put on incorrect substrate. Well done :D

Hi Matt,

 At least you got this lovely one, and you never know you might have more to come by the sounds of things, will you be keeping this little one. :)

Hi Karen

Yes as it's my first hatchling think I'm going to keep it as long as it doesn't turn out to be a male as the dad it very hyper and don't think they would get on lol.thing is as they are so cute would find it hard to sell any of them in the future lol
Regards matt
