Checked on the egg today and found it to be sweating.. small water drops all over top of it. Have no idea if this is good or bad. Nothing has changed in the incubator for about 2 weeks. Temps in incubator is about 85f-87f, temps outside is about 82f-85f.

The egg is still alive (I think). no mold or signs of rot. 3 weeks ago there was a visible black spot inside - believed to be the skink..that is now almost half the eggs.

I do not know if the sweating means it is to hatch soon, or it about to die..

IF ANYONE KNOWS PLEASE TELL ME...OR TELL ME TO STOP WORRYING! So few people breed these skinks that breeding advice is hard to come by.
