Hi folks,
I bought some of what we have been calling "slug eggs" home from Charlesworth wetland last weekend in the hopes of getting pics of the developing embryo.
I'm starting to suspect these eggs are actually Genus Oxychilus.
The first pic looks really good.
A couple of days after I got the eggs home I had a first attempt at photographing them and found a small Oxychilus , no bigger than the 2mm egg in the pottle.
No guarantee it didn't sneek in with the soil I put in with the eggs.
Will be interesting to see if I can get a few of these to hatch.
Pretty much flying blind at present.
All images are the same egg, just varying direction and lighting.
