Cut open infertile egg but....

Out of curiosity I decided to cut open an infertile egg that was incubating before it went bad and I threw it out. The other egg is doing good and I can see a little gecko inside but this one was yellow all the way through with no growth. In the beginning I believe I did see a cheerio prompting me to believe that the egg did begin to develop but failed to continue developing based on what I found inside.

What I found seems to be two eyes but I am not sure... thoughts? And once again this egg was NOT going to develop and hatch unless it was to become the worlds longest incubating crested gecko egg as it was already 73 days old.

Yucky,the egg contents grossed me out a little and I normally have a pretty strong stomach...my female gecko used to lay duds all the time.But they were always flat.The breeder gave her to me because she didn't produce good eggs the whole time had her.She was 8-9 when he gave her to me and would still lay flat eggs.I never thought of opening them though.

Anyway yeah that little thing at the end looks a lot like a gecko fetus and eyes.

It wasn't actually as nasty as I thought it was going to be... no smell at all


I posted on another forum and some think their eyes but others don't seem to think so..

I'm not good with reptiles but..those look like eyes o.o


You put a baby in a crib with an apple and a rabbit. If it eats the rabbit and plays with the apple, I'll buy you a new car.

ya there eye's. I think the baby died just a short time after the egg was laid. It happens. My leopard geckos some times do that. They will lay good eggs and than some times the baby in side dies just a few days or a week after being laid. I wait till the egg starts to mold or look bad before i toss it. Some times i open them to look, and some times i find half grown babies that have died. Some times it happens cause of ether the age of the reptile that laid it or food she is eating or how much calcium she has in her, so many reasons.

I know this is random but, what all does a person need to incubate eggs? I know an incubator can be used but is there anything else that works?

I just incubate the crested gecko eggs in a plastic shoe box with damp-ish perlite in my closet. It works great.
