Okay, I took a bunch of pictures today when I saw my female digging around. She had been digging for 2 or 3 days and I knew it was about time.

I bought the vermiculite mixed in some water and formed my ground base for my homemade incubator. Here are my questinos

First off, the bad news.
I placed the container under the heatlamp as pictured and checked the temperatuer 4-5hrs later and it said 103F. So I immediately openned the tp to allow the air to cool the eggs.

Have I ruined my chances of having any hatchlings because of this over temperature?

PLEASE VIEW THE PHOTO ALBUM TO MY PICTURES OF THE ENTIRE PROCESS THUS FAR.

Do I need to buy an incubator or if my homemade incubator sufficent?

What is the procedure now to care for these eggs? I read ont he internet to pour water intot he vermiculite every other day?

What is important to monitor for these eggs? Humidity? Temp? Mositure of soil?

Please help me as this is my first time and I would like to have as high a success rate as possible.
