Don't open any more.....some do leak and ooze before hatching.......that one may have been going to hatch in the next fews days. The shells get thin as they ready to hatch and you certainly shouldn't be picking up the eggs at that point either as they are more delicate then. If you want to candle them.....just darken the room and candle them in place in the incubator.......you should be able to see them just fine.

:Today I was candling my nearly 2 month old dragon eggs when i picked up one and noticed it starting to leak. it had a very small pin prick hole in it. I don't know how I accomplished doing that, but I was very sad. Knowing the baby was going to die anyway, I openned the egg so I could see how big the babies were getting. The poor thing. I could see it's heart beating. I felt so bad for it. It never got a chance. :(

:luckily there are 15 brothers and sister left in it's clutch and 15 more that are from a younger clutch. I still feel awful :(

:I do find it humorous that everytime I check the eggs in the incubator their mom always looks at me with daggers in her eyes. I think it's mostly jealousy, but it's fun to pretend that she knows I am going near her babies.
