Good news about eggs!!! Today, with help from international volunteer Angie Gamber, I excavated six healthy, fertile looking Blue Iguana eggs from mother Arlington and father, recently deceased, Matthius who was one of the seven animals killed in last months attack. At least he will be genetically represented for future generations. Moms is recuperating and prudently nest guarding while eating whatever she can to gain back all the nutrients she used to produce and lay the eggs. This brings our total for eggs in the incubators up to 91.  The most ever, with a few more females ready to nest any day.
