Hl female carrying developing brood.jpg

While Hapalochlaena lunulata females are semelparous having a single reproductive in their life time, it is clear in this photograph that the eggs were laid over several days. Some of the developing eggs are just beginning to show chromatophores and have not yet turned in the egg while others are well developed and are ready to hatch.

My new favorite of your photos! WOW! This is such a great picture in so many ways but the view of so many different stages of egg development all in one bunch is fabulous!
