5 week old eggs

Not open for further replies.


So my bearded dragon, Precious, had a male in her life 5 years ago who passed away and she has been housed separately ever since. Well she laid eggs just about 5 weeks ago for the first time ever in her life she’s about 6 years old. We also had no clue she was pregnant could not see or feel any bumps. Just to make sure I candled them all and was shocked that 3 out of the 14 had an embryo inside..... Well I decided that there is no way they could actually be fertile but I incubated them anyway about 4 days later 2 of the three rotted and I had to get rid of them. I talked to the vet and explained this situation and she said it is extremely rare for a bearded dragon to hold sperm that long but if I have a fertile egg and that is the only male she was ever around it has to be his. Well 5 weeks later Precious’ egg is growing and has veins all through it. I’m just wondering what it should look like inside the egg right now. I keep her egg around 80-85F most of the time with it occasionally going slightly above or below. Humidity is around 70% there is no denting on the egg either. I saw a slight movement the other day but I cannot actually see the dragon in there should I be seeing him by now? This whole event was just crazy but I do hope he makes it since he would kind of be a miracle from our male that we lost.

This is Atlas, he's my 3 year male leatherback. i don't know whether to be worried as he has no femoral pores what so ever, not even small ones! i always thought they would come with age but he is getting a bit older now and i'm starting to worry. here are some photos of his lack of pores. if someone could let me know if this is healthy that would be greatly appreciated!!
