Lizard  Eggs

Eggs are a crucial part of the life cycle of these reptiles and play an essential role in their survival.

Lizard Eggs are the reproductive structures of various species of lizards, including geckos, skinks, and iguanas.

They are unique in shape, size, and color and range from small, round eggs to elongated, elliptical eggs.


They are often covered with a tough, protective shell composed of  calcium carbonate and other minerals, which helps prevent desiccation  and support the developing embryo.


They allow lizards to reproduce and pass their genes to the next generation.


They are also food for predators, such as snakes and birds, which helps to maintain a balance in the ecosystem.
