On Monday April 2nd after getting home from work I was astonished to find 15 babies crawling around inside of the cage I immediately separated them from their mother. I have them in a small plastic enclosure feeding them flightless fruit flies and small crickets. A misting them two or three times a day but I don't know if they're getting enough moisture.

I need to put a plant in there that holds moisture better and make a drip system. The plastic leaves don't hold moisture at all. I have a brand new screen enclosure but they don't recommend that for newborns. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I need to come up with a better method of dispensing the fruit flies that are crawling out all over I have packing tape along the top Edge that stops them from getting out but it's very hard for the babies to find and eat them they are hunting though.

Well I'm down to 8 I'm trying to supplement the beta carotene vitamins I believe they're in repaid or something like that I'm not home so I can't read it two of them that died with their tongues hanging out one of them died when I was trying to hydrate him with a Q-tip I'm just spray misting them before and after I get home from work but I think they need a drip system I want to move them to a glass Exo Terra enclosure but I have to seal up the door or the fruit flies will escape, it's too bad they don't make a drip pan drainable for this type of enclosure. I also moved the UVB bulb about 10 inches away from the lid because I think it was overheating them last night there was four of them on the bottom of the lid getting the rays.

Like i told everyone before..caring babies will take 24/7...misting has to be coordinate with ur keen eyes n observations..baby gets dehydrated more quicker then u can imagine..hopefully these 8 babies of urs will grow n survive in no time.
