Yes, beautiful geckos!
I am also sorry to hear about your female....however, thereason she died (I am assuming) is that you have to give them 2-3 years before breeding them. Chahoua females are extremely vulnerable to MBD, due to the fact that thier eggs are so highly calcified. Also, there has to be enough calcium deposited INSIDE the eggg for the little ones to muscle thier way out.
I am simply trying to give a POV on this so it does not happen again. If I am being too nosy......I appologize.....its just that I know that you feel the same way as me- Chahoua are amazing beautiful creatures....not to mention expensive....so, they should be taken care of in such a way that they are fragile and you have to be careful.
Looks like you have some great babies.....I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors, and feel free to ask me anything, ok?
Talk to ya soon.

experience tells, must separate the male and female after she laid eggs, to give her a period to take good rest and recover.
thanks all for comment.

Might wanna do some additional research on breeding these guys before you give it a second go. Not to be rude, but it's a good idea to do tons of research before breeding any species of any animal so you can avoid tragedies like these. Beautiful geckos though.

Chahoua's need to be at least 2 year before breeding them. They take a lot more time to mature. And as said they are very sensitive about MDB.
