Hatchlings look far too big to fit in their eggs.
The eggs of Marbled Geckos - Christinus marmoratus are hard-shelled like tiny bird eggs, 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 very common around Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth, and is often found in peoples gardens and sometimes in their houses.
