    i found a naked egg in my Thai Rainbows home in September. In a few weeks, I had pedelings. But the egg was huge - 1.4 mm and it was naked. Apeuthes encase their eggs in fecal pellets and are closer to 1 mm. I really don’t think a fertilizer pellet could find its way to my home (I don’t use them or products that contain them). I would be shocked to find my carelessness landed an egg from a neighbors enclosure. I don’t even share food amongst enclosures. Once in, it stays in. This is the third one I have found! I gave it its own home now and I can’t wait to see what becomes of it.

    No! It turned darker and shriveled. I am pretty certain it was an egg. We may never unravel the mystery of the naked egg!
