The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is experiencing a baby boom.
Since Feb. 12, the museum has seen 17 eggs pop up throughout habitats within the Geckos exhibit.

A freckle-faced Crested Gecko hatched from its egg Sunday and a Lined Day Gecko hatched Monday.

The latest baby measures 1.5 inches and joins two sibling Crested Geckos and two Lined Day Gecko babies.

“We are thrilled to be a part of exposing nature’s wonders to children and families. The hatching of these tiny creatures adds another layer of education to this informative and fascinating gallery and opens the door to family discussion,” said Dr. Jeffrey H. Patchen, president and CEO, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.

There are more special deliveries “due” to make their appearances in the near future. These include babies from Fan Fingered Geckos, Crested Geckos, Bibrons Geckos and Lined Day Geckos.

The new additions will not be on display because of the extra care they require.

The Geckos exhibit runs through May 15.
