Default How to spot Leopard Gecko Eggs?

Hi, My leos did the deed about half a week ago now and I was just wondering how easy their eggs are to spot. Do they bury them in their moist box? or will there always be a little bit of egg poking out?

I check her box daily and have a little dig around but I don't want to dig around and hurt an egg so it would be helpful to know

Thanks

Well the ones i found were poking out but i think there is just as good a chance that they will be buried. I just check the soil every couple of days but im sure there is a better method.

I upload photos etc first here before they are on the forum, also it is easier to contact me there as i am on there more than on the forum. You will also get to see the babies for sale before the whole forum does so it is worth your while!

They usually dig a hole on one side lay the eggs then completely fill the hole back in and pile a mound on top.

They are usually well buried but it will be 4-6 weeks after she has been mated that you should expect the first pair of eggs. Then every 2-4 weeks after that.
