Hi there. My husband and I found lizaed eggs this summer. I ended up incubating them. I was so worried that I wouldn't do it right. I found 7 and it took 3 weeks tfor these cute little guys to hatch. Only 2 made it. Oh my god were they ever cute. I put them in a tupperware container. I put holes at the top, enough for air to get in. I put the container under my bathroom counter, I hardly go under there. I kept them kinda poist. I sprayed the top surface just a little bit.
I started losing hope near the 2nd and 3rd week. The ones that didn't make it started collapsing and drying up. I thought the last 2 wouldn't make it but they did. :My son found two leathery opaque white lizard eggs about 1/2" long, with what appears to be viable embryo inside. They were in his sandbox which has been covered with a tarp for a month. The only lizards I have seen lately are the alligators, just found one one week ago. I am wondering if lizards do lay eggs this time of year, and if there are any suggestions on how to incubate the eggs. We put them in a cup that was in the sandbox, filled it with sand from the sand box and covered them about 1/2" with sand. Would love to hatch these guys and let them go!
