    Default S.I.M incubator

    Have any of you guys heard of this?
    http://www.squamataconcepts.com/index.php

    The guy has hatched out several species on it already including cresteds and gargs. It really isnt that expensive, cashing in at $20 ($10 for shipping though :/ ). He has claimed all eggs have hatched except infertile eggs. The container doesnt appear to be very big, 8" x 6.75" x 4.5", not sure how many eggs could fit in there, then labeling could be an issue with species who only lay 2 eggs. From one of the pics it looks like it can hold about 24 beardie eggs.

    The idea itself doesnt look that hard to construct. Just wondered if any of you have tried this, or know of someone who has.

    I know I had seen them when I searched. Thats why I started a new thread hoping maybe someone has stepped up to get one and see how it works other then the guy who made it.

    Bob, how long were the incubation periods?

    What if the egg needs to grow wider than the space given? How can you expand the size of the space given?

    I don't know the exact date they were layed, I forgot to right it down. But I think it was around 60 days at a temp of 77F. So far all the eggs that have hatched out of these containers, non of them have had any egg yolk left.

    Rhacsect08- Normally I put the eggs in the top grid that is 2 wide, which gives the eggs plenty of room to grow but not move around. But these eggs were smaller than normal, because they were the last eggs of the season. (I didn't really expect them to hatch)

    good question! I was thinking that myself, what if you were trying to breed a larger species with larger eggs. Here is a list of what I found he has hatched out with it, and what he currently has incubating in it.
    Leopard geckos
    Crested geckos
    Gargoyle geckos
    Yellow ackies
    Blackhead monitors
    Green Iguanas
    Bearded dragons
    Bybrons geckos

    Animals currently being incubated on the container...

    Condros
    Fat tail geckos
    Ball pythons
    Hognose snakes
    Gilas
    Mexican beaded (Heloderma horridum alverezi)
    Corn snakes
    Albino and normal carpet pythons


    I posted on a thread on GF on it, if you can adjust the width or not. I will let you know what he says.

    You can adjust the width. The rails can be placed anywhere on the grid. They come out, and all you have to do is put them in the spot you want them.
