  • Ebenaui egg...way tiny!

    I'm not holding my breath that it's fertile, but it would be nice. Here is a photo comparing it to a tic-tac. Can't imagine a baby being that small.

    Wow, the tic-tac puts everything in perspective! Is the egg hard? It doesn't look much different than the soft duds my grandis laid, but I hope this one is viable!!

    Shouldn't be long before you're overrun with uros!

      It's a hard shell. It was still a little soft when I found it, think she had just laid it a few minutes before I found it.

        Prob a dud, the good ones are fully formed and not gluey. Where did you find it in the cage and is it the first eggs? Mine laid a few slugs before depositing fully calcified eggs.

          This is the 3rd egg, but 1st one I found that didn't split open. I'm inclined to think all 3 are/were duds as I found them all elevated: on a branch, on a ledge and this one stuck to a leaf. The last 2 were in Aug/Sept about 3 weeks apart, I have 3 females together and know at least this one & one of the previous are from the same female (she has hugh calcium sacs also).

            Yeah I asked because when you find them "glued" off the ground your dealing with duds. Still it is a good thing as she is cycling, just takes a bit to get them right.

              Thanks! My fingers are crossed for both fertile Eben & Sikorae eggs this coming year. It'll be a challenge compared to garg eggs, but I'm so looking forward to successfully hatching some baby Uros.

                Working so much with soft-shelled eggs I always wished for hard-shelled. Then when I got hard-shelled it was soooo much different than i expected. The eggs don't show how they're doing nearly as much rhac eggs, but you'll get the hang of it. Do they require lower temps?

                  I got similar eggs from one of my young female Henkeli, they were duds.
                  Although, it is good that your group is beginning to cycle, you should get some fertile eggs this spring.

                  Good luck!

                    Incubation temps can range from 70-78ish. It usually take 90 days or so and the hatchlings are very small!

                    Cheers!

                      Thanks! I currently have it in with my garg eggs with temps between 71-75 (night/day).
                      With an egg that small, I think I'll freak next year if/when we have fertile eggs hatch.
