thank you Sandra for your so detailed reply. I put them initially in this incubator where I incubated cluthes of others reptiles that need higher temperatures. now I took 2 remaining clutches and put them in other home made incubator with an average temps of about 25 degrees. I initially put the needed moisture by weighting the vermiculite and water, but I had never gauged the humidity % later, only have checked the eggs, and adding some drops of water around eggs if they begin to form dents. do you mesure the humidity % with an hygrometer during incubation? how do you do it? have you to put the whole hygrometer inside the egg container? How many humidity % should it show? all the babies that died in the shell were looking okay, showing no malformation. may be they have suffocated in their eggs, because high temps cause them to consume too much oxygen? I never encounterd such problems with others lizards I breed: bearded and frilled dragons, veileds chameleons, leopards and crested geckos.... so may be this is the reason panthers are so expensive? how do you do to attach photos to your reply in this forum? my survivor babies are doing very well, I think I get one male and 3 females, but yet not sure.... thank you
Daniel
