well ahab came out of the den at about 230 this morning and ate a fiddler crab that i hand fed to her. then she went back in the den to eat it and blow on the eggs some more... meanwhile i got some great pictures of the eggs and of her feeding. im not sure if it is but i think the eyes of the little critters are developing cause i noticed that in every close up of the eggs there are 2 little blue dots in the end of the eggs.

I think I can see something reflective in most of the eggs so you are probably right. They sure are tiny...
