    Another update on the eggs... for anyone that missed my last thread, Yanni, my female tortoise (and the matriarch of the creep) laid 5 eggs on Bank-Holiday Monday. (25th of May)
    Here is the thread:
    http://wdisneysecrets.com/forums/chi...now-video.html
    with the video of her laying in.

    Today, I candled them, and it looks like ALL FIVE are fertile

    You can see the bloodsac in this picture. Inside the egg is a large sac that encompasses the yolk, the embryo and also a sac of air. The yolk gives the embryo the nutrients it needs.




    Not sure which picture is of which egg as they all look the same, but hpoefully gota good mix of pics in there so that you can see it

    :rofl: can you see the blood-sac? It's fairly obvious from here as I know what it looks like and where to look for it... not sure if I need to highlight it

    No need to highlight, can definitely see darkened area on the eggs.

    Well.... I'm kinda hoping they are girls I have one male, two girls, and 2 unknowns. The thing is, I have a feeling at least one of the smaller two are male and that leaves me in a sticky situation I already have 1 female with a man's name... Gus!!! You can't tell their sex until they are about 5 really..
