An update on my western fence lizard eggs: of the 8 eggs she laid, 2 look a little like they may be duds; i.e. small and yellow, but the other 6 are in great shape. When I shine the flashlight on them I can see the developing embryos. The temperature in the incubator (homemade) is holding steady at 80 fahrenheit or -. During the heat of the day I put a cold pac in the incubator, so the thermostat can work with that to keep the temps from going too high. This has saved the day during our recent heat wave. About three weeks before the earliest estimated hatch date I will commence breeding up a colony of pinhead crickets for the babies.
If this all goes well and I get babies, I will share photos of the incubator and the results with the forum. I am thinking they are due about mid August at the earliest.
