Hi Everyone,

Charl.dbn and I decided to breed our Red Spitters, and the time has finally arrived!

They are slowly starting to pop out, all 17 of them:)

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful! How long where they incubated and at what temps?

Thanks for the nice comments everyone!

Groenslang, Charl did all the hard work and says he incubated them at 29 degrees and the first baby cut at 52 days.

This morning there were only for eggs still occupied, but the one hasn't cut yet and I have a feeling it isn't going to hatch:(

But at least we have still 16 healthy babies:)

Well done chaps and love the photos. That first one with that smart little eye marking is just great. Must make interesting times when it comes to feeding that little lot!?
