    Hello everyone i was out watering the flock and went to pick up a cinderblock to put the waterer and feeder on top of so leaves wouldnt get in it and found a lizard with huge eggs underneath it. I never knew they layed such big eggs lol if she wasnt so protective over them i would swear she stole them I know its random but i thought it was interesting

    Wow, those look very large. Could they be chicken eggs? Could it be a hoard of stolen food?

    Are you sure they're not chicken eggs? Looks like chicken eggs to me! I don't think those things could fit out of a lizard that size. [​IMG]

    Quote:Small critters can lay surprisingly large eggs for their body size. Take, the kiwi, for instance!

    If you think your chickens had it bad!...


    So what happened to Mama skink and her eggs? Did you leave them be?
