This thread will follow the development of 3 little terrapin eggs that were laid in the museum, They were found on the 14th of Jan, and it has been exactly 2 weeks since they were laid. This is after 2 weeks of development, the red lines are the veins that are developing in the embryo. This is the first indicator that the eggs are fertilised and are developing. On an average, red ear sliders eggs, aka the common terrapin, takes about 50 days to hatch, we are now 14 days in, we'll send an update every week to check on the little ones! Edit 17/02/2020 So far the eggs have been showing signs of drying up. So there may not be a successful hatch, but we will do our best to keep them alive and hopefully see some babies within a week or 2!

This thread will follow the development process of the eggs that our beloved Sulcata has laid, do note that we are still unsure of the eggs are fertilised. But follow this thread if you want to have the latest updates about our proud little mama! Cin is a Sulcata Desert tortoise, when female Sulcatas are mature, they can have up to 6 clutches of 10-18 eggs. The eggs take about 3 months or so to hatch, but even before they do, it will take some time before we will know if the eggs are fertilised. They were laid on 14/10/2019, so stay tuned!
