No just the last two eggs in that clutch were fertile in the end. Every time I can think of so far my fertile eggs came all at once. I've had bad eggs a day or two before n after good eggs couple times, just never good eggs then bad eggs then good eggs again. IDK honestly n this is just one thing that intrigues me with these animals...I've worked almost obsessively with herps for 30 years or more n hatched about everything out n there has to be a reason for bad fertility in gilas but I don't see it yet. Starting to think the answer is beyond anything of basic husbandry because my animals thrive on adversity it seems more than the stress of micro management. I'll bet storm systems n barometric swings somehow influence prime time ovulation or something to do with conception though....maybe its 180 though in its the males sperm likes storms idk.....most keepers see their colonies go nuts for spring storms though.....I've seen this tons with others species too n surprised its not considered more...maybe I'm nuts too....

I'd like to acquire about a hundred sexually mature female Gilas next few years n then worry about numbers n production. LOL
