    Hi there. my female laid 2 eggs, I left a container with peat moss in the enclosure, on the...

    heating pad and the moss was moist. not knowing what to to do Ieft the eggs as is. The  1 dented after a week and the other 2 days ago, but she buried the eggs about 1 inch under the moss. Must I move the eggs to an incubator? and the eggs are green wright?

    This question is a little funny when you consider that we're left imagining what kind of animal this is.  If my husband ever called me "his female" he might get in trouble.  Clearly, you care about your pet and are trying to provide the best of care, though, so I hope all goes well for her with the eggs.

    Sounds like a turtle? You need to be a bit more specific. Don't you think?

    Assuming you found my breeding leopard gecko hubs, you need to get a proper incubator, or they will not hatch properly just left in the tank. Also, make sure to keep the incubation medium moist so that the eggs don't dehydrate, like they're doing. A better medium is to use vermiculite, perlite, super hatch, or some other medium. Moss doesn't stay moist long enough.

    If the female wasn't with a male, the eggs will be infertile. If the female has been with a male separate them, as they don't need to live together year round, and because you aren't prepared to breed (it doesn't sound like).

    The eggs should NOT be green. They should be white.

    Also, for the most accurate response, please post questions in the comment box at the end of the hub, not the 'ask a question' box to the right of the hub.
