Nice =) Do you have more than one female in the same terrarium? Ore are the eggs on the first pic from the same female? And do you let the "parents" stay in the terrarium that the eggs are in? Have heard they eat the juvies?

I have a few trios setup and a few pairs, so yes I do keep more than one female in the cage. I keep the eggs with the parents and when they hatch I usually take them out within a few days just so i can keep track of how they are doing. I have never had the parents eat one of their babys.

Ohh okay. I moved my pair from the terrarium where the eggs are just because I heard taht they would eat their babys. But then I maybe dont have to worry about that :)

If you moved your pair from the eggs DO NOT put them back in with the eggs, they will eat them now. You have to leave them with the eggs. If you move them and put them back that can confuse them. They might think it is some intruders eggs now and eat them. You have to leave them with the eggs from the time they are laid and then they wont mess with them.

Aha okey, then I wont put them back in before the eggs have hatched.

How long does it takes before the eggs hatch? And in wich temperature?

The eggs usually take about 110 days on average to hatch, sometimes longer. When I take the eggs out and put them in a incubator that stays a pretty constant 84F, they will hatch in about 80-83 days.

Okey. Read so many different dates, someone had wrote "from 90-200 days". Hard to tell then :P The eggs I got are stuck in the terrarium, so its just to wait then. Founded the first eggs on the 27th of May.

Really it is going to depend on what kind of temps you have during the night and day, and how they fluctuate. If your temps are pretty much the same every night and every day, after a couple of clutches you willl sort of know how long they will take to hatch. The eggs I keep in my cages usually take aroud 110 days. The temps in the cage are usually 88 or so during the day and drop down as low as 78 at night.
