In Reply to: Desert iguanas 2nd Egg clutch of the year posted by JohnStyner on April 07, 2003 at 08:59:58:
: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,
