The Life & Times of Louis & Amber - Eggs

One day at the property I found these two tiny white spheres tucked away in the latch of one of our containers.  I made an educated guess that these might be eggs of some some variety, since they hadn't been there the day before and couldn't have arrived there at random.  I, of course, decided to take these home.

My sweet wife Amber indulged my curiosity, allowing me to keep them in a glass jar in our office.  She faithfully checked on them every day for the first few weeks.  Then it declined to about once a week, and from there down to just occasionally.  We had about forgotten about them since they hadn't hatched.  If we had remembered we probably would have thrown them out.  Then tonight Amber just happened to see that the egg shells were broken open on the bottom of the jar...and the jar was empty otherwise.

So we now have a reptile of some sort roaming our house.  Or perhaps we'll discover some very tiny birds one of these days.  Oops.


  1. Are you mistaking "eggs" for "egg sac"? My mother frequently read Be Nice to Spiders when I was young.

  2. Surely too small for a gator. A scorpion, maybe?
