Back Into Corns

So after about 3 years of not keeping Corns, a friend of mine donated a pair of adult Amels to me. Breeding Season hit us 4 months later, and I paired them, witnessing 6 recorded locks in the process. On 31 December 2018 she laid 9 eggs. I will candle them tonight. Will try to post pics over this weekend. I say try because Photobucket uploads my pics, but will not post them.

Breeding season is always an exciting time. Seeing good eggs makes it even more exciting. Now comes the nail biting, waiting for the first pip.

I candled the eggs on Friday evening , day 5. 8 of the 9 show slight veins, with the longest egg of all showing no veins. My problem is no incubator, and ambient temps have been around 26 centigrade. I have found a spot in the house now where temps throughout today were consistent at around 28.3 centigrade. I know that temps above around 31 centigrade cause problems and issues, but at what temp would growth stop. I don't think anyone could answer, as I doubt that anyone has done a study.

I don't know why the other pics didn't upload.

Temps between 26-28C are perfect for hatching. They do not have to be consistently at
one temp for success. I've read that higher temps like 30C can cause spinal deformities and 31C can cause embryo deaths.

Thank You so much for the reply. Set my mind at ease for a bit.

As a followup, I candled the eggs again this Friday. There has been nice growth in the eggs, a lot more red showing, with more veins visible as well. So all looks to be ontrack. Sadly I never took pics.

The key to successfully hatching eggs is to pretend that you don't care if they hatch or not. The ones you don't care about always hatch, the ones you fret over always seem to have some problem before hatching. Murphy's reptile law.
