Some advice on an egg please!

Not open for further replies.


So my one egg that is alive from my dragons clutch is at 75 days and has started to sweat and dent which I know is normal when they are about to hatch. What I want to know is it normal for them to discolor before hatching and I haven’t seen him moving in awhile can that be normal also?

How is the egg doing ? Sorry no one saw this until now. If the egg still seems viable can you post a pic ? They can discolor a little bit sometimes but I'd have to see a pic.

This is what he looked like a few weeks ago


And now he looks like this


But I haven’t seen movement in there for a while I’m not sure if he is still alive

It may still be alive but it''s also possible that it's dead but with beardie eggs, " when in doubt don't throw it out. " The exceptions are if they're totally deflated like a water balloon with almost no water in it or if they obviously are stinking from decomposition. You can add a little bit of water carefully around it with an eyedropper or syringe, enough to make the substrate around it damp. If you ever have eggs again, make the substrate damp [ I used vermiculite or sand + vermiculite ] and make an indentation for each egg to set in with your finger. I had almost 100 % hatch rate that way. Maybe you can see in this picture :

You can see mostly on the left how the eggs are sunken in the substrate .

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!!
