One day after we welcomed baby leopard gecko “Pip” into the world, along came his/her sibling & identical twin – “Skip”! Born 3/8/13. My son & I had the pleasure of watching him burst into the world. It’s amazing how a 2 1/2″ baby lizard can manage to fit in an egg about the size of a nickle. Nature is a mysterious & wondrous thing!
Skip was not too thrilled to have the flash going off as “he” was busy breaking out of his egg. He’s got a slight glare in his eye…It’s recommended to leave them alone as much as possible because they stress out very easily, so I didn’t try to get any more pictures once he broke out of his shell – which only took a matter of minutes.
My son exclaimed “We have TWINS!”. They look identical and from their markings, will take after Daddy Sam, who is a “regular” fat-tailed leopard gecko. Mom Leslie is an albino leopard gecko so we didn’t know what the babies might turn out to be.
They are both 10/11 days old now & cohabiting happily with each other.
More pics of both Pip & Skip to follow!
