Abstract: The residues  resent in hatched eggshells of captive-bred squamates were examined and their amounts recorded . Large amounts of a semi-gelatinous fluid were typically left in the eggshell at hatching. The amount of residues. but not hatchling size, depended upon the uptake of water by the egg during incubation. 1 n some instances egg yolk was also left in the eggshell at hatching. The role of these residues in the water relations of reptile eggs have largely been ignored.
