The best info I have found so far is that the eggs should incubate for about a month (sometimes longer - one person said he waits interminably) at 20C - 24C in a lightly moist substrate (about the dampness of a house plant). They seem to lay 2 to 4 eggs every 2 weeks (plus or minus a day) for 3 to 4 months. They prefer to lay in a grass or moss area ( I use a Tupperware container with a hole on the side) which remains in my terrarium. I remove the eggs to my incubator small aquarium with heater and cover). These are my first asian long-tailed grass lizards and so far I have had 19 eggs , all of which were fertile but the early ones turned brown and did not hatch but I still have several eggs which seem to be doing fine.
There is very little info out there on these lizards and much of that is confusing.
If you get any more info, please let me know at

Good luck!!
