    Just though i would share with you a picture of my winter amyae clutch. Shows what a fertile egg looks like in the early stages. These eggs are a little less than 1 week old. 1 fertile 1 infertile. I would love to see other pictures of fertile eggs at different stages of embryonic development if you have any.

    To draw attention to these very helpful pics again, should I be able to see this distinction any earlier than one week? Both mine look like your infertile one, tho they have only just been laid.

    Thanks again for these!

    That is really helpful mate, thanks!

    That egg does look fully 'clear' in the first pic, gives me a little hope :D

    I can see veins in my amyae as soon as they are laid. Sometimes they can be faint and hard to see under the sand coating the egg, but still visable.

    Thanks mummabear! Must be easier to see in an amyae egg as opposed to a diplodactylus one :D
