Propagation



Females produce 5-6, or even more, clutches of two eggs each per annum. The eggs are glued to a suitable substrate, are roundish and typically measure 15-19 x 19-23 mm. At the day temperatures given above and slightly less at night, they take between 130 and 190 days to hatch. Hatchlings emerge at a SVL of 47-53 mm, a tail length (TL) of 44-50 mm, a tL of 91-103 mm, and weigh between 2.5 and 6.0 g.
They should by all means be left in the terrarium of their parents as these care intensely for them and would never attack them. In the case of danger, the juveniles will typically hide under the belly of one of their parents.
Once the young geckos become mature, they will have to be removed from the terrarium of their parents immediately, though.
