I have a species of megafaunal carnivore that are extremely mobile with territories spanning hundreds of square miles and lifespans of 120-150 years. They lay clutches of 2-3 eggs every 20-30 years,but their eggs often go into an extended period of diapause which can last at a maximum of 130 years. They eggs do not have to worry about high predation risks due to noxious taste and toxins, and are often laid in locations that are hard to reach such as mountaintops. Egg abandonment is a very common process in these species with parents abandoning nests if a rival enters their territory or if they are not able to care for the soon to hatch young. To hatch the eggs must be exposed to an extended period of warmth (temperatures exceeding 75 degrees fahrenheit) or being exposed to high concentrations of pheromones from another of their species for an extended amount of time. Finally, my question, How would the random births (hatchings) of organisms that could potentially be older than adult organisms that are currently alive?
- Would this cause a species wide homogenization of traits or genes due to random influx of genes last seen in action over a century ago?
