Are you wondering what’s so fun about keeping lizard eggs? Good news if you’re a snake or lizard lover, you’re probably good bet that the young born babies are going to be a welcome addition to your home. Because of their small size and the sturdy structure of their eggs, l are pretty sure that yours will contain baby snakes. Snake eggs tend to be very soft and very leathery with slight grooves on the inside surface.
Lizards, also known as “Amphibians,” have lived in the earth since prehistoric times. And because they’re quite adept at surviving dry and damp environments, they’re also very good at protecting themselves from predators. Unfortunately, lizard eggs are not a very attractive target for predators. Their eggs are small, water-soaked, and generally not very attractive to anyone who isn’t a reptile lover. And their young (and their unhatched babies) can quickly die in water if they get wet.
If you do keep them, you’ll want to raise them in a suitable incubator. The most popular types of incubators are the terrarium incubators. These are made specifically to hold reptiles – and even some mollusks! This sort of incubator is usually made of a plastic material which is extremely resistant to heat. You should place your lizard eggs in a terrarium of this sort, with a small opening on one side so that the baby snakes can escape if they hatch.
Another kind of incubator for lizard eggs is the pheromone incubators. These are made of a special synthetic material which produces pheromones, or chemicals which attract males to females. These attract them because they simulate the natural environment of a female lizard. When the snakes and lizards lay their eggs in this sort of incubator, the pheromones will attract the male, who will then hunt the female and bring back her to reproduction. If you keep them in the right enclosure and conditions, these pheromone-producing glands will also be secreted in the scent of the lizards and make lizards go into heat rapidly.
But let’s assume you don’t care about lizards and don’t raise them to adulthood, because you’re just interested in buying pet reptile eggs. There are other kinds of incubators which can be used to keep reptile eggs in good condition when they hatch. Your first option is a moisture incubator. These look a lot like the standard incubators but instead of holding moisture, they hold a moisture-repelling foam which replaces the moisture lost in hatching.
However, you still need to make sure your lizard eggs aren’t contaminated. It would be really troublesome if something were to go wrong with your collection or you unknowingly allowed an infected pet to go into the wrong enclosure, contaminating all of your eggs. So you need to make sure to buy a good incubator. The best way to choose is based on the size of your lizard cage, but there are other considerations as well. For instance, certain species of birds, such as chickens and quail, cannot safely be placed inside a standard housing made from mesh, so it would be best to buy a moisture-proof container.
You need to make sure that the incubator has the ability to keep constant temperatures. This is especially important for lizards, as they can grow quickly and their body size changes drastically during the season. If the heating and cooling unit cannot adjust to the changing temperatures, then you run the risk of your lizard eggs becoming unproductive. A lot of incubators have the ability to regulate the temperature on their own, so make sure that this is included in your purchase.
Some other considerations include the number of small eggs that your lizard will lay during the season. Lizards usually only lay one or two large eggs during the year, so you want to pick an incubator that can keep up with this. Also, some species of snakes like to lay small eggs in nests along with larger ones. To acclimate your snake to this, you might need to purchase several small incubators. Finally, keep in mind the type of lifestyle that your snake possesses. Some lizards lay small eggs only, while others may require a small incubator so that they can get their food at all times.
