Sorry for your strife. I can relate. I got problems with infertile eggs too. Not gonna let it frustrate me because the more homework I've done its a whole lot more common than most working with these critters will let on. JUST LIKE REGURGING!
One of many things that leads to their value n scarcity in captivity n nature. SUCKS though...........so does the overwhelming arrogance among most the heloderm keepers out there. There is a few pros that are the best n open books like Dr. Seward n Mr Angeli and always try n help me. But it's surprised me how hard the wanna bees try to covet knowledge on these animals husbandry they don't even understand. PATHETIC GREED

I've looked over n refined every aspect of my Gila care I can consider n two females kept identical one produces bad eggs n one good so idk.....even with their mates kept identical. Even those two given males reverse paired the next season give me totally unpredictable results. I wouldn't doubt physiologically they are like a Panda Bear or something n timing n everything has to be just perfect for things to work.Personally I think the weather influences there fertility to an extent...... Another frustrating thing for me is I've found good eggs embryos die the first month or so too often and I cant figure out "WHY"

....seems once we get the courage to ask why in life we must find the grace to accept there is more questions than answers out there or we will go nuts.....



peace
