In Reply to: incubating Texas Spiny Lizard eggs? posted by Crystall on May 01, 2003 at 23:18:14:
:I caught what turned out to be a gravid female Texas Spiny Lizard, and she just laid 15 eggs.
:I have an incubator, but im not sure how to incubate them, and how long.
:Id like to hatch these babies out and release them if possible.
Man, that reminds me--I need to visit my TX spiny spot and check out the action. I usually ride my bike there but haven't had the opportunity lately.
I haven't incubated eggs before, but I'd imagine you could look up care sheets for any Sceloporus or, in their absence, North American native lizards of other genera and get a feel for what's involved. Shouldn't be too demanding once the general setup is established.
I have a female that lives on the roof of my house--page here, that laid eggs in my flower bed last summer. I think the ants got to them before they hatched. :(
