Until recently, our Schneider's skinks, males and females, were kept separately. As a result of the decision to bring them together, four eggs have being laid.

The conditions in the skinks' cage, however, are not suitable for incubation: the sand is not deep enough to dig a burrow and the keepers can't control the temperature and moisture. The eggs were therefore collected and incubated in a temperature-controlled room, placed in sand, kept under the right temperature and moisture regimes, and hatched after about 30 days.
