Here are a few pics of Jetta's eggs.
Quite a few!!!!! GL!!!!!!
Cool, thanks for the pics!
I'm no expert (can never seem to say that enough), but from what I've picked up from this site, if the eggs appear totally white, it means they're probably not fertile. Can anyone with knowledge on this chime in?
That's how it is with my Cons. Dont know about an octo though. :?
well there is definately an egg yoke inside, half of the egg is clear the other half is kinda white but ya never know
Do you have a closer close up?
no this is as close as i could get before she totaly went nuts on me :?
Excellent pictures! I like the second! Was that Jetta watching? She looked mad!! Doesn't it take a few days before you start to see some development? I know one of the octo eggs, after a week or so you could see a spot in all the eggs.
These were also taken with the tank lights off and three large flashlights on her and the eggs, that might have something to due with the color but only time will tell at this point :P
Oh yeah she was really mad :x she even came out some what to get me i just notice these eggs yesterday, i have no idea how long they have been in there since i have left her alone in there and didnt bother her.
Hope it works out. How exciting!!!
it takes a while to tell if they are fertile or not...
remember any disturbances to her now will cause problems, sometimes when they are aggitated they seem to stroke the eggs so much they fall off the cave
There is a possibility that the eggs could be fertile, If you wait some days more and the eggs are fertile, you should be able to see the babies developing inside the eggs.
cool, hope they are fertile :D
Sekhmet, cool octo thing, (didja ask permission before you put it on?)!
Good luck, Deb!!
Any update on Jetta? Have you been able to see the eggs or are you leaving her be?
And welcome to Sekhmet!
As of this morning i have still been leaving her be. Do you know how much this is driving me nuts not to look every single day!!!!!!!!
I bought some fresh shrimp last night and today or this evening im gonna try to offer her one Maybe this time i will use a bambo skewer so she doesnt have to teach me a lesson again :P
to TONMO.com, I really love those two octopods, did you create them?
I say my prayers for the stick, its no match for the beak.
I have the same question as Joel, did you make the animated octos? And, did you use 3-d poser software? A geek friend needs to know.
