Because the egg was laid in the water... i think that’s the reason. But I have another female which has an egg so maybe this is the next chance

I’m using a normal incubator.
Temperature between 27-29C.
Humidity 70-90%.
Which conditions do you have?

Yes maybe the substrate is the problem. I’m using fine vermiculite

They are really gorgeous! I wonder how long an egg can be in the water and still be viable if taken out?

I don’t know that.. I still don’t have breeding success with this species.
This season I just found one egg from one female. All of my other turtles didn’t lay eggs yet.
But I found aome K. Baurii eggs in the water. They have to be there around 2 hours to 1 day. I put them in the incubator. I checked them after one week.. nothing.
After 2,5 weeks I saw the first veins.
Now they got an embryo and start developing.

How Are the eggs doing? Any more development in the ones you saw vessels in?
You said you might have the 2subspecies, do they differ a lot?
