Reptiles/green anole egg?


I found a green ample egg in my cage but  it seems to be deflated and hard I don't know if its suppose to look deflated AMD I don't know if its a dud. Could ypu please help me out

Hi Mandy,
If there is no male, then it isn't viable if your female has never been with a male.  Since it is hard and deflated, that also is a pretty good sign that the egg is no good.
Generally, when eggs are laid and its known they are most likely fertile (male and female are owned and live together) the eggs are removed and incubated.

I am well versed in all aspects of the care and keeping of green iguanas, leopard geckos and bearded dragons. This includes all husbandry issues pertaining to the above species. I am not a vet so I cannot answer medical questions. I research other reptiles and am able to give general information on other species of lizards. I prefer not to answer snake questions as that I have not researched them enough.


I own 3 green iguanas, two of which are rescues. I own two leopard geckos, both rescues. I've had my reptiles for 11 years. I spend many hours researching the care of my reptiles to keep up to date on all information pertaining to keeping reptiles that I have. I own a yahoo group dedicated to raising healthy iguanas.
