:Awesome! I don't think there is much info out there to be found on Trimorphodon. Take detailed records of the incubation as that information is greatly needed. And of course, take many pictures when they hatch!


I found a little info that gives me a rough idea. According to "The Venomous Reptiles of Arizona" by Lowe, Schwalbe and Johnson:
Trimorphodon biscutatus lays "7-20 eggs about an inch in length, laid in late spring to early summer, hatch in Septemper-October. Newly hatched young average 8" in length."
I guess this was a very small clutch. There were a total of only 5 eggs and one went bad almost immediately. I'll definitely post some pics of the babies. It will be cool if I can catch some pics of them in the process of hatching.
thanks,
Chris
