St. John Fauna: Iguana Eggs

Iguana Eggs

st john animals: iguana

Green Iguana

Although iguanas are supposed to lay their eggs in burrows, covered by dirt with an air hole, this particular iguana laid her eggs right in the middle of a concrete driveway.

I took the liberty of moving her eggs and photographing them. Next I’ll try to recreate the burrow and see what happens.

    Very cool idea, Gerald. If everything works out, you’ll be the proud Papa of nine! Yikes!
    I wonder what made Mama lay them there?
    Give us updates, with details please, on how it’s going. And thanks for sharing.
