Instahatch #85 with a temporary tattoo!

This Sulcata egg was laid on 3/5/19, shipped 6/17/19 to Willows, California, delivered 6/18/19, and hatched the same day!!! When i first started shipping freshly laid eggs, i placed temporary tattoos on the egg.  My success rate for the freshly laid eggs were not very good, which is why i moved away from them and focused on instahatch eggs.  I also stopped using the temporary tattoos because i didn’t know if that was one of the variables causing an issue.  I brought it back with #85 because this egg was massive.  I figured it wouldn’t cause an issue with oxygen transfer due to the size of the egg.  My hypothesis was correct, since it hatched out a perfectly gorgeous tortoise.
