Marc those babies are from the two pairs of Elongated adults I got from you. Since summer they have laid 30 eggs. Today one is hatching from a clutch of 8 laid by the Large adult female on Oct.7th,2012. It took this egg alittle over 5 months to incubate at 84 degrees. I have seen in the literature that they say the incubation period can be as short as 90 days. This is the 3rd season since I got them from you and I have never seen anything less than 140 days. As you can see they love it here in Jacksonville, Fl and are healthy and eat like pigs. I keep them outdoors year around and on those nights when it drops below 60 they are shut up in their hut. The Hut is equipped with a digital thermostat that contols an infra-red heat source with a back up ceramic heat fixture. Thanks for giving these guys a good home while you had them and now they are loving their Florida Resort......later Richard
