The Big Baby
About 2 months ago Biscuit was 30 days gravid. She dug for over a week but would not lay her eggs. We were going to take her to the vet for emergency removal of the eggs when she FINALLY laid them.
Sadly most were yellow and dead right away, the rest started oozing and caving in despite having blood vessels and signs of life and eventually they died. All of them but one.
This little guy or girl was a fighter and showed strong signs of life. The weirdest part of this sole survivor was as time went buy the egg grew HUGE. It is the largest dragon egg we have ever had.
Over 2 months of incubation finally today 8.29.17 it hatched.
With a nose and tail out I breathed a sigh of relief knowing at least one of these guys made it.
I could already tell just by seeing the head this was definitely a larger than normal baby bearded dragon.
Just take a look at the size difference by a penny between a baby that hatched in July and this new big baby.
And look at the difference in eggs sizes.
And check out the comparison to this other hatchling born in July, both of them only hours old.
There is no doubt in my mind that this little guy/gal is very special. I will keep you guys posted on her/his progress on my Instagram.
