Axelotls - Follow the Eggs

I bought myself some eggs online and they were delivered on thursday. The eggs were layed on 14th Feb 2011.

I received the eggs and they are 4 days old so will post images of the development of them.

Day 4: The embryos at 82 hours old. The embryos are neurulating and clearly developing well.

Eggs - Day 11

Day 11: The eggs are roughly between 224 and 250 hours old. A tiny spot is barely visible on the ventral side of each embryo. It's the heart and liver although impossible to photograph. The eyes, and heart and liver area are visible to the named eye. There is also a steady rotation of the embryo within the jelly.
