But they do like to try & eat on dry land....

I took the egg out yesterday, I haven't noticed any banding & it still looks pinkish, on my iPhone case it has a cut out over the camera & flash that's the perfect size to hold the egg over the flash, I turned the torch on popped the egg on & I can't see anything inside, it just looks pinky

Doesn't sound good Tim, I'm sorry... turtles first eggs can often be duds... bit like a practice run ;)

At least you know it will happen again! :)

Right.... I've fixed the link so go on & click on the picture above that wasn't working so you can see Lemmy eating on dry land...

Heres the egg, it's been a good practice run
