    Thanks, he does have an interesting pattern, however I am truly interested in his color for some reason it looks lighter than all the other Normal AFT hatchlings I have ever seen.

    Will do, this pictures were taken last night after he demolished his meal.

    What a little cute guy you have there! Looks like velvet:x
    Congratulations!
    Is there anything different for hatching AFT vs. Leopard gecko's , like temp, humidity?

    Thank you all for your kind words, I really appreciate them.

    Thank you, well AFT and leo's hatchlings are very similar to care for, AFT however, require a bit more humidity. As far as tempts go I have most if not all my geckos between 87- 90 degrees. Since their tubs are so long it's easier for them to thermo-regulate themselves.
    Another aspect that is different in regards to AFT and Leo is their eating habits. Unlike Leo AFT are picky eaters, my two adults will only eat mealworms ever so often which means I need to go out and purchase large crickets for them. As for the hatchling it only eats crickets Im hoping I can get him accustomed to mealies soon. I do not like the thought of having crickets anywhere near my house, but I have to do what I have to do.
