    My pair of Ocellatted Uromastyx laid eggs on May 18th 2017. They are incubating and still going strong. I was just told today that when they hatch it would be the first time for any uromastyx to be successfully bred in Hong Kong.

    How long do Uro eggs have to incubate before they hatch?

    Around 60 to 80 days depending on temperature. There is less info on Ocellated Uros as there isn't that many breeding them. So these numbers are more in general for the smaller Uro species.

    As I sit here drumming my fingers waiting over 100 days for tortoise eggs.

    Just an update, 11 babies were successfully hatched, first one on August 7th, then the rest the next few days. Unfortunately, one died, so 10.

    This is the first successful breeding of Ocellated Uromastyx in Hong Kong, and as far as I know, of any Uromastyx species here. Just wanted to put this on record.
