 Red headed agama eggs piks

Hi,

good news, i’m very happy for you to see it ;)

Did you know T°C (or F°) change the ratio male-female?
last year i used 29°C on my eggs, all (6) eggs are males

Regards,
Olivier

for me it was 85-90 days at 29°C (84.2°F) to have males

for females, normaly it’s 26°C (78.8°F) , don’t know the time, not to try because
before i thought there is no TSD (temperature-dependent sex determination)
So i tried last year only 29°C, and result was 100% males so i changed my opinion about it

With searchs, i found that the first discover for the TDS on Agama Agama is in 1966
like many turtles or like crocodylus

incubation of Agama Agama eggs has 4 informations:

1. TM: Temperature Male for 100% males at 29°C (84,2°F)
2. TF: Temperature Female for 100% females at 26°C (78.8°F)
3. TRT: Transition range of Temperature for a variable ratio male-female: TF to TM
4. TER: Temperature for Equal Ratio: 50% female 50% male, around 27.5°C (81,5°F)

Hi Tony
yes it’s a problem
i had too somes WC females pregnants too, one of them lay 2 times, the second time eggs are bad
stress,WC, not very good food complement on wild and after come in captivity, if females are pregnant it’s a danger and the eggs are not always very good
with agama sankaranica i had this, all females are pregnant with advanced stage and all eggs are bad, only one are ok i thought but like you the eggs leaking before end and he died.

if it’s the start of the pregnancy when there is an import, it could be good but if it’s near of the end of pregnancy it’s a realy bad:
female could not to lay the eggs and died, or lay and died...

when the eggs are leaking, 2 things:
babys will born
or they died before the end

it’s the reason it’ll be more difficult with agama agama WC but after with captive born it’s very better
i can see this with my male who are very good.
if more people try to success with them, maybe one day, there will have more captive born good animal on the market

Olivier
