    Default egg #2- graphic

    warning- dead baby gecko images within- i dont wanna offend anyone.

    in relation to my previous post .. http://www.pangeareptile.com/forums/...ad.php?t=38472

    well after a few hours of reading other posts on the issue of opening eggs i decided to open egg #2 the one that looked like it had the "strech marks". since i noticed the small little pip hole i was afraid he was getting oxygen- i swore i saw the egg moving, i tried to candle and didnt see any movement.
    after i got him out he was definitely gone. his head was not near the hole. but here are some images, let me know what you think.





    are they suppose to of already absorbed all of the yolk by the time they hatch? looks like he did not- you can still see the small red imbilical cord, if you will..


    what would make him die so late in incubation? or what would make a hole in the egg? i just hope it wasent something i did.

    did the other egg hatch already? I've had this happen a few times. I think the egg might be to thick for some geckos to get out of, and the little guy tries moving around but by the time you notice its been to long and it suffocates.

    Poor little baby....it is so hard to cut open and egg and find that. I hope the next one hatches for you and you can have little babies jumping around from now on.

    The other one will probably hatch. In my experience about one out of every ten geckos has trobble getting out.
    Good luck with the next one!
