Eggs?

Postby rbcrmr » Tue May 28, 2013 10:22 am

One of our BT skinks has laid an egg-like mass three times in about three weeks. They were flesh-colored, hard, ovoid and about an inch long. What could these be?

I believe it is an infertile ova, but I could be wrong.

Donkeybuff is bang on the money

Infertile ova,or commonly called a slug ,often they come out different looking,more orangey and more yolky looking,thats if u get to see them as females often devour them straight away,this is the only one i found from a female northern,no babies at all
