    Default In need of help( eggs)


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I am in need of some help. At some point last night my leopard layed two eggs, I found them this morning. At this point I am unsure if the eggs are any good. They both seem to be drying out. What do I need to do? I have placed them in a container with a damp paper towel. I have attached a pic of the eggs. Thanks

    The one on the left doesn't look viable and the one on the right is too covered with stuff to tell. Has this female been with a male? Were you expecting eggs?
    --If the female hasn't been with a male (either at your house or at the pet store), she is laying infertile eggs and there's nothing you can do except to toss them
    --If the female has been with a male before you got her, see below for incubation info
    --If the female has been with a male at your house and you weren't intending to breed, this was not a wise course of action because that's what's happened
    --If the female has been with a male and you have been planning to breed, ideally you should have been prepared with the proper supplies for incubating eggs as well as housing and feeding offspring
    (I don't know what the situation was, I'm just laying out all the possibilities).

    That said, now you've gotten eggs and will likely get another pair in a few weeks.
    For successful incubation, the eggs need to be at high humidity and at a very stable temperature somewhere between 80-88F. That's why most people use incubators, though some people have been successful because they have a place in their house that meets these standards.
    Unless your female has never been with a male, in which case you should just throw out any eggs that appear, you need to find a way to incubate the eggs when you find them. This is beyond the scope of a thread, so I recommend you google "breeding leopard geckos" and see what you come up with. Good luck!
