We have a breeding pair of bearded dragons in our classroom. On February 4th, our female started digging to look for a good spot to lay her eggs. On February 5th we were able to retrieve 17 eggs. The incubation period is approximately 60 days before they hatch.
This is the Hova Bator Incubator with our first clutch of eggs. The interior temperature has been set to 85ºF and water sits beneath the screen floor for humidity control.
The custom-made enclosure with two stages and gravel substrate. Basking areas are at each end of the tank and a lay-box has been placed inside the enclosure in anticipation of the female laying eggs. The top stage is utilized as a "feeding platform."
