    I'm going to just compile all here since it has been some development over the days and I hope this will help someone else or keep an update about my leopard gecko (named "Cupcake") state. On my previous thread: "Leopard geckos: How much smell it's "too much" after laying eggs?" around four...

    I think my 'male' cali king might be eggbound, there are two large lumps in his abdominal cavity, one near the vent. I thought 'he' was a male because 'he' tends to go crazy and do loops around his viv every spring, I assumed 'he' was looking for a female. Is there anything I can do to make...

    Hi guys. my 3yr old female was mated for 1st time - successful. today (sometime between 10am and 5pm) she laid 1 egg. By the time i got home it was dry. She has refused the 2 tubs with moist vermiculite and just laid in the viv on the aspen. I gently lifted her into 1 of the tubs but she came...

    So... my corn snake girl Thera had an old egg stuck about an inch from her vent. She could pass feces fine, but that egg was quite adhered. She went in to surgery yesterday to remove it and overnight 3 inches of her tail died, and1.25 more inches are clearly on the way out. When I rushed her in...

    Hey guys - I did post already but I'm not sure if it got deleted or moved My 2 year old female beardie wasn't being herself so I took her to the vet to get checked out. Turns out they gave her an ultrasound and she has overactive follicles on her ovaries. The vet said they aren't eggs as of yet...

    hey everyone. My 2 year old dragon pancake hasn't been herself recently so I took her to the vet and after an ultrasound he said her overwrites are over active, and if they don't develop into eggs she will have to have them removed. He gave me a week to help her find somewhere to lay, and if not...

    We have an Alligator lizard that had eggs but isn't laying them. We have taken her to the vet for x-rays and done as the vet has instructed. However she refuses to lay the eggs and isn't eating. She does show interest in eating but is too full from the eggs to eat. We've called the vet again and...

    Two weeks ago, on the recommendation of my vet, I started breeding my young female leopard gecko who will be turning 14 months old next week. This was after she became very bloated and started losing weight in her tail - she looked very disproportionate and uncomfortable. The vet told me that...

    A Controversial question for all you gecko (and other lizard) keepers. Your lizard is taking its good ok time in laying its eggs. You think its taking too long to lay, you may even fear it's egg bound. Before you go running to the vets what "home treatments" do/have you tried? I.e...

    Hi all, So I've been keeping a couple of snakes together for a while now, and on Friday I found that one of the snakes was laying eggs (2.5 years, 3 feet, 150 grams). Not having prepared for this at all I saw that she was laying in a dry hide, not very dark, basically awful laying conditions...

    Hello there, Just wondering, for a male and female bearded dragon's (of breeding age and weight) to be in the same viv, a 4x2x2, as I have heard that the male can stress the female out which would result in egg binding, cheers, gemma

    Hi everyone. My female corn has laid a small clutch on Friday. This is her 3rd season and she usually lays about 10 eggs. This year she's laid 2 sluggs about 5 good looking (but smallish) eggs and a couple of odd ones that may wither to nothing in the incubator. I've just cleaned out her box...

    Hello there, I will jump straight to the point my young male bearded dragon (around 7-8months old) has been worrying me the past couple of days in the respect that he has been quite lethargic, seemingly 'bloated' ,restless, has had a weird sort of twitch or movement of the head sometimes and...

    I have a 40 gram first year breeding female leopard gecko. She has laid two healthy clutches this year and the third lay she produced just one egg. She also seems to be thicker on one of her sides with a small white bump that is slightly visible from the bottom. Lately she has reduced her...
