It turns out my WC MHD was gravid. Yes! This is a first for me. I just got her in January.

I returned home Saturday from a long vacation to find that she had filled in the large hole she’d dug just before I left. I found seven eggs yesterday.

Based on what I saw and what my "dragon sitter" saw, these eggs were buried at least seven days beneath five inches of damp sand. They could have been down there ten days.

Six of the eggs were buried in a group. The single egg at the bottom of the photo was buried a couple inches higher than the rest, and at least two inches off to one side. I sifted through the entire vivarium with my hands, and didn’t find any more eggs.

The single egg at the bottom looks like it might be a dud. The center and right-most eggs in the top row might be duds, too. Any thoughts?

Hopefully, the babies will have horns on the sides of their heads and long snouts, just like Mama.

(Jobi, I still hope to get a decent photo of her entire body to email to you for help with identification. I hope your offer to help still stands. Your posts are amazing!)

Wish me luck! -Jeff
