Ebi-kun and his friends went to a disused patch of land nearby and caught a load of lizards, so we now have 3 of the little critters! One of them was quite fat so he went off and researched and decided that she must be about ready to lay eggs.
This morning we came down and they were just milling about as usual, we had breakfast and whilst we were eating, this happened...
Yep, we now have 3 lizard eggs. The book suggested moving them out of the tank, so they are now sat in a bowl, Ebi-kun will have to sort out a new tank when he gets home from school.
I'm not sure how long they take to hatch, Ebi-kun is super excited. I'm also not sure what we are going to do with them over the holidays, I can't see daddy being up for foraging in the undergrowth for grasshoppers and the such like!
I think they will have to be released into the garden when it comes time for us to get on the plane!
