Do you see the red blotching when candling? If so the eggs may have died some where during incubation. At this point in time you should see dark shadows (of the head, arms, tail, etc.). Even with a dead embryo an egg can continue to swell and appear as if it is fertile, so you need to candle it. As far as the collapsing goes you can place a SLIGHTLY moisten paper towel gently over the eggs. If the paper towel is to wet you risk drowning the embryo this late in development. Your lower temps would account for the longer incubation period, however things look slim that the eggs are still viable =(. Do not lose all hope though; I have seen some pretty bad eggs yield nice healthy hatchlings. Donít throw them out till they are shriveled and moldy. Iíll keep my fingers crossed for you.
