The objective of this study was to identify and understand the causes of pre hatching mortality in gharials (Gavialis gangeticus) in order to take steps to prevent it during subsequent egg collection. Total 200 eggs belonging to 8 nests were harvested and brought at the Gharial Rearing Centre and incubated. Out of 200 eggs 188 eggs hatched with a 94 % hatching success rate. Twelve eggs which failed to hatch were either damaged during transportation, infertile or underwent partial embryogenesis only.fatcat:ud3v6b3df5d3ncwbt7t5qrv2ue
