2 of my females laid 2 eggs each in one of their humid hides which I found tonight. When I was retriving the eggs my hand got stuck & the eggs rolled. Now I dont know which way they were. I dont want them to die. Ive googled it & some same the red circle, which I assume is the embryo, is supposed to be on top & some say its supposed to be on the bottom so im confused. Does anyone here know the correct answer? Thanks, crystal

It doesn't matter the first day or so. Just incubate them the way they are now and it will probably be OK.

I have had eggs roll at 20 days and even 50 days. And they have hatched. I have seen breeders roll eggs on a table.

I think Leos are set up a bit different as they will lay their eggs in the same spot in the wild. And as we know will lay about every two weeks. So the females digging will not hurt the eggs and others hatching will not hurt them. I do not recommend rolling eggs but if it happens I think you incubate them no matter what.
