    Default 304 days!

    I haven't posted here in a while but I figured some of you may be interested in my chahoua hatchling. The clutch was laid on June 15th of 2010. The eggs didn't hatch, but they never molded or appeared to go bad so I just let them hang out on my shelf. Then today, 304 days after being laid, Rip Van Winkle decided to finally wake up!





    I am hoping the other egg will hatch soon. Both have looked ready to burst for months now.

    Don't toss your eggs till you are 100% certain they are bad!

    I incubated them on superhatch on a shelf in the reptile room (all rhacs) at ambient air temperature. Other then moistening the superhatch when it dried out I just left the eggs be.

    That was the last clutch from that female last year. She laid an earlier one, her first eggs ever, but it was before I paired her for the year and they were duds. This pair laid their first clutch of this season about 3 weeks ago.
