Brood of rep­ti­les with the JAEGER Kunst­glu­cke Incubator

Eine Schildkröte

FOR SUSTAINABLE BREEDING OF REPTILES WITH THE JAEGER KUNSTGLUCKE, THE FOLLOWING MUST BE OBSERVED:

  • By incu­ba­tion the rep­tile friend under­stands the incu­ba­tion of rep­tile eggs or clutches
  • The opti­mal brood-tem­pe­ra­ture lies here fre­quently bet­ween 25–34°C
  • Most rep­tile eggs are soft-shel­led snakes and many lizards
  • Soft-shel­led eggs should always feel firm
  • Dents caused by finger pres­sure must disap­pear after a short time
  • During incu­ba­tion, most eggs should lie moist, never wet, as this restricts air cir­cu­la­tion and can lead to rot­ting and mold
  • Unfor­tu­n­a­tely, we cannot cover all fac­tors in detail in all news­pa­pers, it would go beyond the scope of this arti­cle. The­re­fore the fol­lowing explana­ti­ons can only be of a gene­ral nature. We the­re­fore ask you to use the tech­ni­cal lite­ra­ture offe­red or on the sub­ject-rela­ted web­sites on the Inter­net to deepen and broa­den your knowledge

FOR SUCCESSFUL BREEDING WE OFFER THE FOLLOWING DEVICES AND METHODS TO SUPPORT YOU:

  • Please use incu­ba­tion con­tai­ners with sub­strate fil­ling to pro­tect the JAEGER KUNSTGLUCKE Incu­ba­tor so that it can ful­fill its tasks as long as possible
  • You can find sui­ta­ble incu­ba­tor con­tai­ners with and without fil­ling in our Inter­net store
  • The sub­strate should be as germ-free, moder­ately moist and air-per­me­able as possible
  • For this pur­pose, peat-sand mix­tures, peat moss, moist foams or the gra­nu­la­tes “ver­mi­cu­lite” or “per­lite” pre­fer­red by JAEGER BRUTTECHNIK are used.
  • Use moist brood set and insert hygro­me­ter
  • The rela­tive humi­dity can be influ­en­ced by chan­ging the eva­po­ra­tion surface
  • In order to check the stage of deve­lo­p­ment of the eggs, it is advi­s­able to shine through (shea­ring) with a spe­cial lamp – Egg Hooping Lamp
