Remember our little friend from Thursday’s post? It looked as though a handful of other eggs had the potential to hatch. Based on egg condition alone, I guessed there would be a total of six. I guessed wrong.
The incubator has been busy. There are a few more turtles just waiting to hatch. Click to enlarge the photos.
Looks like my guess was too high, doesn’t it? Wait.
Overnight, three other turtles hatched, so we’ve got four that have completely emerged, and three others that are on their way. Plus any surprises that get thrown out there. If you only click on one to enlarge, click on the left. It is hard to appreciate the weirdness in a thumbnail.
And let’s not forget this guy.
Here’s an upclose and personal of his egg-tooth. He used that to shred the egg in order to make his escape.
I’ll be watching the clutch with even greater interest over the next few days. Who knows what miracles will emerge?
I’ll keep you posted!
