Bearded Dragon hatch report - Day 361

    About Bearded Dragon eggs

    Bearded Dragon eggs, like most reptile eggs, are not hard-shelled but soft and leathery. Some of the eggs may appear to deflate before the baby Bearded Dragons use their egg teeth to slit open the eggshell and poke their noses out to take their first breath of fresh air.

    Once they've stuck their nose, or whole head, out of the egg they will probably rest for a few hours to gather their strength before fully emerging. Most of the hatchlings won't need to feed for the first few days as they are still surviving off the yolk in their stomachs.
