IMG_2689 Marbled Gecko Christinus marmoratus Egg and Hatchling
Hatchlings look far too big to fit in their eggs.
The eggs are hard-shelled like tiny bird eggs in this species however many other species lay soft shelled eggs.
Marbled Geckos usually 2 eggs in a clutch (sometimes 1) and sometimes lay in communal nests - 30 were found in a single nest by
Harry Ehmann, and I also found about half that number in a communal nest in an old wall in my parents garden.
This species is extremely around Adelaide and Melbourne and is often found in peoples gardens and sometimes in their houses.
