    Hi all,
    Some of you may remember a couple of months back I posted to say I had 5x V. primordius eggs incubating, well just thought I'd give you an update. Over the last couple of days the clutch has hatched and I have 5 tiny babies running around. I'll put some pics up over the next couple of days to give you an idea of how small they are.
    The adult female did lay another clutch, but unfortunately she did not choose the best site to deposit them and although I found them first thing in the morning they were beyond saving.
    Cant win them all, but at least I have thes 5 little guys.

    Probably tomorrow morning. I've just taken some pics and if I get a chance later tonight I'll put them up, otherwise it will have to be tomorrow. Got to go do some cleaning, feeding and watering now.
    Also they are not the easiest animal to photograph at the best of times, so dont expect too much just yet.

    Hi Joel, thanks mate, how are things going for you?
    Anyway here are a few pics. Not the best, I'll try to take some better ones in the next week or so.
    There is a 5cent piece in there for scale.

    I will probably sell 2 or 3. I've already had interest in them, but I can let people know if that changes.
