Some knew I had several fire skink eggs that I acquired from petco about a month and a half ago. Well they have started to hatch and I have 2 pictures to share.
I was fortunant and caught a baby emerged but not out yet. This is actually the 3rd hatchling as he makes his way into the world.
Here are the first 2 little guys that had hatched overnight.
There are currently 4 of the little guys already out. One egg hasn't hatched, but it has begun to sweat so I suspect within the next hour or 2 I should see some signs of him emerging as well.
I will try to grab pictures of everyone later on. The first 2 that had hatched have already started eating, so it appears they are off to a good start.
If anyone is wondering, that substrate is coconut bedding similar to bed-a-beast. I got these eggs when I was working at petco and found them in the AM at the beginning of my shift. To protect them, I tossed them in a Beta bowl with some dampened coconut bedding to prevent them from drying out and so I could heat them. I never transferred them from the container or the bedding. They went straight into the incubator. (84 degrees for those that want to know.)
Hopefully I will have more pics tonight.
