 My anole laid eggs!

So yesterday morning I woke up to discover my anole laying an egg! a few hours later I incubated it in a small Tupperware container. but after a few hours I noticed the egg looked flat or "deflated"...
is there any suggestions as to what I should do? I think she’s only started to lay eggs but I still want to raise as much as I can...

Make sure the incubator conditions are ideal, there’s how-tos for that online. Deflated eggs are either duds or they dried out. White ones are usually live and the yellowish are duds. You can try leaving an egg in the tank as found until you’re sure it’s live. After several weeks, you should be able to hold a flashlight to the egg and see the embryo inside!

That’s so cool! I tried incubating the "deflated" egg but I determined incubating only makes the eggs hatch faster so I decided to leave the eggs in the tank they were buried in, to reduce risk of damaging it when I move them to the incubator.

Thanks for the advice though!
