:...I can't remember who it was that hatched some (I believe they were from a WC gravid female) last year. Anyone else know who it was?
:I am just curious what temps and how long they take to hatch. From what I remember, they seemed to need it a bit warmer and took over 70 days to hatch.
:Our girl is due to lay in the next week so if anyone remembers who it was and how to contact them, I would greatly appreciate it. What's sad is I talked to this guy quite a bit and I can't remember his name to save my life.
That was me. Mine hatched in 76 days and were incubated at 81 degrees (in a hovabator). I used moistened vermiculite (at the standard water to vermiculite ratio) as the incubation medium. All four eggs that were incubated hatched.
Congrats on your success so far!
