Take this for what it's worth, but that egg looks good to me. Sometimes even if they get a little bit of fuzz on them, they are OK. Just wipe off the mold. Maybe move them into a different egg box with less humidity and see if that helps the mold situation too.

Again, FWIW, I would continue to incubate them until they are certifiably dead, i.e., they smell rotten or have turned colors or caved in. Reptile eggs in general are much tougher than most people give them credit for. Good luck!

>>Hi, I had a wild caught racer that layed eggs 3 days after my gopher snake layed her eggs. I put them in the same incubator and made sure they were all fertile, now, three weeks later, all of the racer eggs smell of mold and some even have a bit of fuzz grow on them.

>>I was wondering what I should do with them...I was told that they are pobably all dead, but wonder why??? None of the gopher snakes smell of or have mold on them. What could I have done wrong that all the racer eggs would die??
>>
>>If anyone can help me out who has had experience with racer eggs, I would appreciate it a lot.

>>Thanks
