In Reply to: What do you suggest instead of vermiculite? n/m posted by hoppb on March 19, 2003 at 11:24:02:

::Sounds a bit too moist in my opinion.
::If the relative humidity constantly exceeds 60-70%, hatchoing rate in fday gecko eggs can drop significantly.
::Also I do not recommend vermiculite for day gecko eggs-especialy if this is fine grained stuff.
::Geckos immediately shed after hatching. Vermiculite grains stick to the moist skin and are eaten together with the skin. This can result in blocked guts...babies never eat and die within a few weeks.

::Hope that helps

::Ingo
