Have you ever seen a freshly hatched Leopard Gecko?

Everybody loves baby animals, so when these guys started popping out of their eggs I thought I’d better grab a camera and share them with you guys!

These are Leopard Geckos that have literally just hatched. The eggs had been in the incubator for 2 months. The interesting thing about these lizards is that you can choose what sex they are. You do this by incubating them at a certain temperature (temperature-dependent sex determination). These eggs were incubated at 82oF so should be little girls.

I hope you like the pictures!
