help! advice needed
my female beardie age 1 1/2 layed her eggs 16 days ago she has been fine till now, she isnt eating or drinking and all she does is sleep day and night, she has been like this for about a week, should i be worried or is she just in brumation?

can anyone help

well isnt brumation induced by temps that are too low or something?

what are your temps, are they right? might not be warm enough for her. :jump:

Get her to a vet ASAP. Where her eggs fertile? she could have retained one.

omg realy, it was her first clutch of eggs so i dont know much about them i have someone looking after them, all i know is that we still have all 21, none have gone off yet.

Ok well even if they are fertile she could still retain. I would get her to your local reptile vet ASAP as she definately needs looking at.
