That is excellent!!!!!

I am so glad this worked out for you. Hopefully some will turn reddish like the dad.

Now to get them feeding. I hope that is not too much of a problem for you. Keep us posted on their progress.

Well done.

Thanks everyone :-)

I just received a nice supply of House gecko's and Anoles, but will try crickets first.

Phobos something to bear in mind is that small snakes make up part of their diet in the wild too. Keep them separated as they eat each other at the drop of a hat.
