 MHD lays second clutch!!

Hi all! So excited! Our MHD has just laid her second clutch of eggs! 10 or 11 and we were privileged to see her lay them! We bought her from a pet store back in February not knowing she was gravid. Two months later she laid 12 eggs. We have 8 of them incubating and all 8 are alive and well! We can see them moving around inside the eggs when we candle them!! Guessing this next clutch will be Christmas presents!! We absolutely love this lizard! She is super cool and I wish that more people knew about them and would breed them so they wouldn’t have to be wild caught. I didnt learn about that debate until after we bought ours! Hopefully her babies can start a breeding program for someone!!!! Just wanted to share!!

Hey there! Since my last post my 8 eggs from first clutch are at 133 days! We are soo excited! I thought I killed them all twice but these guys are hardy! I let the vermiculite get too dry on two separate occasions and I was beside myself! Both times they made it and I can see them happily moving around inside their eggs! The second clutch looks like all 15 are fertile as well! We can’t wait!! I would like to keep a female for a buddy plus I think its so cool that we bought this lizard not knowing she was pregnant, learned and watched her symptoms of laying to incubating 2 clutches of eggs! I think she may be done. She has remained thin unlike after her first clutch. She looked plump almost immediately! I’ll update as soon as I have hatchlings! Thanks for checking in!!

I hope she pulls through and recovers her weight ... consider adding a better type of calcium to her diet. A vet can dispense CALCIUM GLUBIONATE ... excellent for egg laying females.

You can also get it from
Beautifuldragons.com

Will be waiting for more news
Best of luck

Hey Guys. So, I am on day 187 with Lizzy’s first clutch of eggs! Any day now!! I also have her second clutch incubating and they are almost 10 weeks old. Candled them and can actually see movement in some of the eggs already! Also, we just had our third clutch laid yesterday!! 16 beautiful eggs, but my hunch is that most of them are not fertile based on their glowing yellow appearance when candled. I’ll be sure to post when those babies hatch any day now!!!!

Okay guys, sad day for me. Our three hatchlings died. Long story. I have 15 current eggs incubating with movement. I’m hoping to not make the same mistakes this next time around. After the 15, then I have 2 more from a third clutch she laid. Of those, Only 2 of 16 were fertile. I never planned on incubating eggs and boy has it been a long road but I have learned a lot and will continue to learn more I am sure!

I am sorry ... how frustrating that must be.
Reminds me of my first few attempts with corn snakes...i kept losing the eggs...
after the 3rd attempt I was successful , but it hurts to loose little lives.

Good luck and many successes to you

I’ll pop in again

THANK you for the encouragement!!! It was definitely a very sad day and kept me up at night thinking about all the mistakes we made. Life is God given no matter what form and when you see it die in front of you, its very sad!!! Thanks again for your kind words!!
