We have a few anolis lizards living on our balcony, they are also known as the Graham’s Anole (Anolis grahami). While gardening a few weeks ago, I found a couple of their eggs in one of our flower pots.Today, I remembered the lizard eggs and was happy to find them still intact; the eggs were not hatched as yet.I decided to crack one of the eggs, and did so with the hope of seeing gooey yellow yolk; instead there was a lizard embryo. In this next photo, you can actually see the blood vessels in the firm yellow yolk.The lizard embyro seemed to be in its early development stage. A closer view shows the eyes of the lizard beginning to develop. You can see the two darken spots for the eye lens.
After throwing the embryo away, I returned the other lizard egg to it’s hiding place in the flower pot on the balcony.
