    Default P. Masobe laying!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi guys,

    Thought I would share some awesome news! This morning I was lucky enough to catch one of my WC female Masobe's laying! There has been some talk from what I have read about females covering the eggs with feces as a deterrent. I was lucky enough to witness this, it was very much done purposefully and I have it on video. She laid her eggs and after a while of grasping them firmly with her back feet, she excreted feces and rolled the eggs in it thoroughly. Enjoy the pictures! Both eggs are fertile and hard!

    That's really neat! Love how those eggs are little spheres!

    Thanks! Yes, the eggs look amazing. They are definitely larger than I expected. A lot has been said about the difficulty in keeping Masobe. I have had no issues! I have 2 males and 3 females and all my females are gravid and doing amazing!

    Sounds like your doing things right. I'm not familiar with their care at all. Just that they're awesome little guys.

    Mmm, interesting, we never dared that and have always used a bottlecap with dry medium on top.., the same as with Uroplatus henkeli, which eggs are very similar.
    Good luck with the incubation.

    Yeah, I do that as well, I moved them into something different. It was temporary while I got a bigger container--was not expecting such large eggs. Should have mentioned that earlier! haha
