I am sorry you misunderstood my post, it’s quit alright don’t worry about it, but pleas if theirs anything you don’t understand from me, pleas say so!
The main reason I post on these forums is to practise my English, progress is terribly slow for an old frog. lol
To be honest I am both surprised and happy you guys understand most of my English, I already consider this a success over language barriers.


Now to the point!
I said most breeders will advise you to incubate in darkness, this is true!
However theirs no benefits in doing so, in fact incubating eggs with a light cycle may have virtues of its own?

I am willing to bet, your lizards colors will improve with every generation if you incubate like I do, of course I will win hands down for having tested my theory on many species already.

Hear is how it works, stem cells, hypothalamus, photocells these are the embryo, all affected by heat and light and react to these stimuli’s.

The same way your lizard gets dark when cold and brightly coloured when heated up, the embryo reacts the same to heat and light, when stimulated at such an early stage color pigments reach there maximum potential, of course photocells keep developing as the lizard grows, but its overall color potential is greatly enhanced.

This is not documented, at least not that I know.

The cycle of life is not about Constance, it’s about stimuli’s and variations.
Stagnant cells have nothing to live for, no motivation. (incubating at steady temps).
Variation in temps and light stimulate cells into growth and health, doesn’t matter witch being fauna-flora it’s the essence of life.
