Re: Mangrove monitor egg

Monitors (varanids) are capable of parthenogenesis. That is, females laying fertile eggs without breeding. I believe that the offspring are all female.

It isn't going to hurt your monitor for it to eat the occasional egg. You probably ought to make sure it has deep enough substrate to lay any additional eggs. It wouldn't hurt to incubate any you find, either.
