So to date i've "succesfully" hatched 3 p. lat lat hatchlings. One hatched about a month ago, and 2 more hatched this weekend. The first innitial problem that i noticed, was that the last two that hatched seemed to be premature, or malnurished. They seemed a little small, had irregularly see-thru skin, and had difficulty sheddign thier first shed (they were both born partially shedded *my first one wasn't*). But they seemed alert and i went through and placed them into my hatchling enclosure. They refused to eat SandFire Day Gecko Food and/or pinhead crix, but i was able to ge them to drink. Earlier today i found one of the last two dead, and seemingly dried out. I assumed nothing more then it dying from natural causes from being premature, but later i witnessed my eldest hatchling attack the remaining gecko, and mortally wound him. I quicky split them up, but i was to no avail, the baby was on it's back convulsing. I waited a little while, incase it was jsut shock, but it was obviously not goign to recover. So i did the right thing and humanely put it out of it's misery. I've learned my lesson, and i've got a larger hatchlign enclosure in the process of being put together.

Can anyone relate to this misfortune of mine? Or was this a novice mistake, made by someone who shoudl have known better?
