EGGS!

I received two eggs on May 18th from a female Geoemyda japonica!  Both looked good initially but only one ended up being fertile.  I’m very excited about this one egg as I can see the eyeball and the outline of the turtle when I candle it.  Candling the egg requires the use of a flashlight.  I used an LED flashlight as it’s brighter and doesn’t heat the egg up because it doesn’t produce much heat.  Here are the egg measurements:  Egg #1 49.29mm x 23.52mm, Egg #2 43.35mm x 23.98mm.
