Default Green Tree Python egg laying


My GTP laid a few eggs today - couple of good ones, a few that seemed to be duds, but she still seems rather large and although she has sort of gone into a 'behive coil', she seems awkward and not how she should be.

Is it possible they can have a 'break' from laying and then resume? I've taken the eggs that I saw out - they were off to the side and not within her coils - but I've left her in the nest box in this weird uncomfortable looking coil position. There's at least one egg under her that I can see (I suspect a dud).

I thought maybe leaving her overnight in the nest box in her cage might be the way to go?

Just wondering if anyone has heard of GTPs, or snakes in general, not laying all their eggs in one go?

Thanks in advance!

Just an update - there were some more eggs under her, also duds as I suspected. Better luck next year!
