One of my females had an egg, June 14 and I was just wondering how long it takes for them to hatch. I think some one told me around 70 days but I am not sure.

It all depends on your incubation temps.If you incubate in the viv,it will be much more than that,say 90 days at least (comparing with my former ulikovskii,a very similar species).

Well this is her first egg EVER so i don't even know if it is fertile or not. She has clearly two more in her stomach and I hope she will have these on the ground. The one this subject if about is on the wall. I had to use the technique were you put the container on the wall filled will hatch rite. This was my only choice because it was on the wall like that. It stays about 80 degrees in there so what would that be equivalent to?

Thank for your reply

You mean as far as the incubation duration is concerned?

I think ours take 100-110 days or so in the enclosure until they hatch. It should be very easy to tell if the egg is any good. an infertile egg will be yellowish, and a fertile egg will start out pink and get darker with time ( use a small light behind the egg to light it up).

Hi Mitchell

My first eggs i got from this species had 120 days till they're hatched.
At the moment they take about 70 days. Don't ask me why. I really don't know.
