    Hello all, I have put in a lay box for my crestie, Godzilla, as was recommended by people :) However it has not been used, although I know it hasn't been in there long. The thing that's troubling me, though, is the fact she's been on the floor of her tank for a day and a half now whereas she...

    Discovered my Sav is a female a few months ago (everted her hemiclitoris), and over the last 5-7 days I've noticed she's getting really "fat" (abdomen easily doubled in size), while also digging more holes than usual based on that, her age (~18months) and the time of year, my guess is that...

    Is this too close to the heat bulb for my bearded dragon? I thought she was a he (sexed by breeder) but having looked myself because she was exhibiting egg laying behaviour and I now believe her to be a female as there is only one lump in the centre of he tail. She has pores but they do not...

    Yasmine laid her eggs yesterday and I have left her sand pot in her cage overnight, I need to take the pot out of the cage because she won't leave the sand alone, I'm guessing she's protecting her eggs. I don't want her to waste any more energy doing this as she will be very tired and I want her...

    My gecko stopped eating a week ago and thismorning I found her dead . Is it possible she could have died from producing eggs she was perfectly healthy before and had never produced eggs before

    This female's been humping the other females a lot recently, here's why, pre-guessed by Wizzasmum! In the second photo another's come to see what's going on. Normally I'd take the others out of the enclosure, but it's the first nest she's built and usually they make a few attempts first. She...

    I have recently bred my beardies, she had a male in with her and when she started digging he was taken out. We put a cat litter tray full of damp sand and soil mixed, she dug in this as well as other areas in the viv. She began laying eggs last night but not in one area and she didn't lay them...
