The baby crested geckos are almost three months old now. Both hatched at 1.9 grams; October now weighs 3.3 g, which isn’t bad. (Geckos have a rather different growth rate than juncos, you’ll notice: juncos hatch at about 2 g and are at 3+ the next day!)
October climbs and jumps and looks alert, and hasn’t had too much trouble shedding. He’s doing well.
Unfortunately, May isn’t. She is now 1.7 g, smaller than when she hatched. She has at least one visible developmental abnormality, so she may have invisible ones as well, that make it harder for her to eat or grow.
I’m not terribly optimistic about her, but I certainly haven’t given up. She is alert and has, after all, survived this long. Her enlarged eye is weird but it isn’t infected or anything like that, and there’s a chance that as she grows bigger (if she starts growing!) she’ll catch up with it.
It makes you appreciate how well development works most of the time!
