Philothamnus Semi Eggs.

Postby Kennyakagera » Mon Mar 12, 2012 7:44 pm

Hi guys !

I got a problem with my two philo, I've been at work without taking a day off for 5 bloody month (without having a egg layed) and i'm going 2 f@$#'^€ing days and she decide the lay whilr i'm away !! Are they kidding me seriously ???!!! :smt011
Anyway when I got back tonight I saw those eggs layed behind the water dish but all collapsed because of the "dryness"? (is that english?) ^^ so I quickly put them on my compost which I humidified very well and put some damp toilet paper on the top as someone told me last time.
Is there anything I can do ? Or you thing its too late ? :(

well, have a good night everybody !!! :)
and thanks by advance for your answers :)

Keep the moist paper towel on, I have hatched 20 out of 24 corn eggs that looked like that. Just try it, no harm in trying.

Kennyakagera i have rescued eggs in similar condition it's extremely important to rehydrate the eggs.
Personally i would use any form of moist moss to do so.

Groenslang's method works wonders too cover them completely

I agree, they don't look too bad. Rehydrate them and they should balloon out nicely again.

Those eggs can still be salvaged. Just cover them with damp moss and make sure the humidity is as high as you can get it. The substrate must be wetter than usual too. They should be fine. What you do over the next few days will be critical.

Thanks everybody for all the answers it give me a bit of hope !!! :)
So what I did this morning is that I took my compost put it under water, get reed of all the "overflow" if you know what I mean, and add some damp toilet paper on the top ... Is that fine ? Not easy to find moss here ...

Thanks again I ll keep you in touch !! :)

Hey gamin!!

Your eggs seem definitly done....
You should rehydrate them and check that the temperature of incubation is around 28°C and prey!

Could be something from the compost you're using. Just a guess.
