Tuffilina layed 5 eggs. 33 days after her 1st clutch. One was infertle and I broke one again leaving me with 3 good ones. She is really good at hiding them. She didn't lay them in the same spot. She had a lot of tunnels going all over leading to dead ends. Again they where fully buried leaving an open area around a portion of the clutch.

I still have 3 eggs from her first clutch although one looks a little moldy so I sprinkled some Sphagnum moss on it it hopes the acidity in it will curtail the mold on it.

I seem to have trouble with the eggs getting moldy. The first cluch is in .75 verm and 1 water.

I got Randall Greys "Desert Lizards " brand new book I noticed it reccommends 4 or 5 verm to 1 water for incubation so I went 3 verm to 1 water for this new second clutch. I didnt read the whole thing yet but I noticed a reference from Tom Greb in the DI section of the book which makes the book even more credible in my mind. Very Cool Tom!

I'll keep you all posted,
John Styner
