Wildlife Wednesday: Turtle and lizard eggs

There is a special room at the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital where a large variety of eggs are incubated.

Vet Natasha told myGC the hospital is currently incubating both turtle and lizard eggs.

“The eggs are kept in vermiculite, which is warm and holds moisture, at a temperature of about 28 degrees,” she said.
