    Default Babies not eating

    I had 2 hainanensis hatch on June 9th and they both appear to be healthy but they haven't eaten yet. These are my first babies and I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong. Here is how they are set up:
    -shoe box sized container
    -paper towel substrate
    -2 caves
    -1 humid hide with paper towel
    -small shallow water dish

    The container is kept in a cool dim area so it is not overheating and has no bright lights shining on it. I left them alone for the first few days and then tried crickets on the 14th, they showed no interest so I left 2 very small crickets in with them in case I was the cause of them not eating and they still didn't eat them.

    Should I try crickets again tonight? Any ideas?

    I'm not familiar with this species, but I do have a lot of leopard gecko hatchlings. Some of them just take awhile to get going. If you're sure husbandry is correct (can't help you there) just keep offering. Hopefully someone who works with these can help out.

    One of the babies died, the second seems to be eating crickets. I say "seems" because they disappear but he won't eat with me watching him. He doesn't seem to be getting skinny like the other baby did so hopefully he will be fine.

    I'm really sorry for you and the little goni.
    Only in case he will not eat again, you can try to hand feed him (with chicken baby food/ syringe) . It need a bit patience, but I'm sure you can manage it.
