Sammi eggs.

Sammi had 12 eggs today. The ones that looked good went into the incubator. I've hatched Varanus Salvator before and am currently waiting for Sammi's last egg to hatch from Oct.

This species is rarely bred in captivity and just gazing upon eggs is already a rare privilage.

Shes been antsy pantsy diggy glass dancy for about two weeks now and either off food or not very hungry. I'm glad shes finally done. She does this every 6 months or so.

If these hatch they will be clones via parthenogenesis. Which would be extra badass.

Fingers crossed.

  1. Looked up the species... they become huge! (up to 3 meters?) Do people keep these as pets? Wow! Is this a California thing? ;-o

  2. lol typos!

    They actually make great pets for people who can provide the space for them. They grow up to be extremely tame most of the time, they are widely considered the smartest monitor and I've clicker trained one to come when called and stay in a certain area.

    Pretty sure they are legal to own in most places, they don't post a risk of being invasive (well perhaps in Florida) and aren't aggressive enough for people to feel they are dangerous.

    Sammi, the monitor that laid these eggs is around 5 ft and 20ish lbs. Shes very tame and kids like to interact with her. :) :)
