 Egg incubating?

I work in the grooming salon at pet smart. Last night a girl from pet care showed us an egg she found in the long tailed grasslizard, bahaman anole and green anole tank. I decided to take it home and try to incubate and hatch it, because otherwise it would just go out with the bedding.

It was white and slightly smaller than a ticktac, it turned slightly pink when I got it a bit damp. Its currently sitting on some peat moss in an old mini greenhouse thing I had for seedlings. Its sitting on the heatmatt in one of my lizard tanks.

I read that it takes around 6 weeks for any of those 3 species to incubate. I’m trying to keep it at around 70-80 degrees. And I’m keeping the soil damp. Any more advice? How do I tell if it dies? When can I candle it?

I am not sure what candling means. But you are doing good. Do not turn it over or you will suffocate the egg. You can tell if it dies if it is shriveled up.
