I was misting my garg cage last night and noticed that one of them looked smaller than usual. I mean REALLY small. Surprised to find out it was a new hatchling lounging around on the liana wood. I guess I missed an egg a few months ago!

Unfortunately I just discovered that the new hatchling did not survive. I noticed last week that something looked odd about it: it had a normal eye on one side and what looked like just a pupil but no iris on the other side. It's jaw looked a bit off too. Tonight I went to take some pictures and it was dead. It had a slit in the upper chest, which I didn't notice before. It was alone in a 6qt tub with a plastic hide, piece of cork bark, water dish and food dish. I have no idea what happened but sad as I am, it does eliminate the problem of what to do with a 1-eyed garg.
