    Mark,
    I think Thales is on one of his adventures. I just saw a FB post was from Hong Kong so he may be away from regular internet for a few days.

    Hellloooo,
    Well, I just had my first pair of dwarf cuttles lay a clutch of eggs! Question I have for anyone is how long can I expect before hatching?? I have only had eggs hatch that were shipped so I'm sure the hatching time was shortened. Thanks

    My reading suggests the eggs take about 4 weeks to hatch.

    the main link is dead. :frown:
