Obviously some of the former resident longtail grass lizards laid some eggs. Eggs of that size usually incubate anywhere from 40 to 60 days, depending on the temperature.

When the neonates hatch, they won't be interested in food for a couple of days because they still have some of the yolk in their systems. Flightless fruit flies and new-hatched crickets would be ideal food.

Do NOT put a basking light on the little one's tank. Tiny baby lizards overheat quite easily. Just give it a good UVB light. Give it a little branch to climb on and some plants, silk or plastic. A water bowl for humidity and to drink from, and substrate such as ESU Lizard Litter. Don't use sand or those ground up walnut shells. They like plenty of plant cover.

Good luck!
