great pics i love how they protect their eggs like that :D

Lovely picture. How long do the eggs take to hatch, and is there any special care required in the meantime - or do the adults tend to them?

great pic,
have you shon a torch under the egg to see if it is fertile ?

derbyno1 10-19-2007 11:48 AM

it takes about 3 mounths for the egg to hatch, my dad said they is no real need to tend to them he said except turnuing the heat light on for longer during the day. also my dad said normally they wouldn't tend for the egg, he said it was weird for them to always be with it. i haven't put a tourch under it because they is a good chance if i put my hand in they i will get bitten and it hurts a lot.

Ouch. In that case, I don't think I'd be putting my hand in either. How about wearing a glove to do it? Anyway - all the best of luck with it. Please let us know how everything goes.

kind of random, but I was once paid $15 to let an adult tokay gecko bite my nipple, a buddy of mine saw johnny knoxville do it with the baby alligator........that thing would not let go and after about 20 min i finally got in the shower and it released it's death-grip............easy money though, great pics : )
