I was surprised to find these eggs in the soil whilst reporting my adenium. I think they are iguana eggs. Ten eggs in all. Tonight I shall make special scrambled eggs. :hysterical:/>/>

Found this lurking under a pot. It's an almost blind snake, called Ramphotyphlops braminus. The size of an earthworm it's non venomous. It eats ants, ant eggs and their larvae.

I have seen them in buried in my soil before and did not figure out what they will hatch into. What do you want it for?

Ha ha they tasted real good.

But I haven't finished them. I'll keep some for my son.

Can give you the rest.

Thanks! Are you going to hatch them yourself? My cousin DIYed her own hatching box when her birds laid eggs. So fun!

No I won't be doing that. My son he's overseas I don't know what he wants with them.

I can pass you the eggs in a few days. Meantime, I'll cover them up with gravel again.

I've selected 5 AAA quality eggs ready for shipment. Added a bit of water to increase humidity. Put in the partial sun.

When can you collect? Please PM

I doubt they eat snails and slugs?

But I've seen an adult eating a young lizard. They eat mostly insects.

I think young lizards can be kept as pets. Need to feed them mealworms.

I have seen it eat small snail once. I suppose they will eat anything that fits down its throat.

Skinks are really beautiful creatures too. Too bad they are not more common. When I used to live with my parents, there was a particularly bold skink that used to walk from the backyard, right through the house, and into the front yard everyday looking for food in the front garden. My parent's place is right next to a nature reserve so there were snails, lizards, snakes aplenty. I wish I will have the good fortune of finding skink eggs the next time I go back there to help in the gardening?
