    Hi, 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...

    Morning all, Bizarre question, this is my first season breeding colubrids rather than pythons. I currently have a gravid western hognose that pre lay shed 15 days ago. She has been sitting in her lag box for hours on end for the last few days and still hasn't laid. Substrate in lay box is Eco...

    Hi Odd one I know and not a lot about gophers online but I have my female gopher separated from the male as she was looking full and gravid. She shed last night and when I removed the skin from the tank it appeared to have an empty egg shell tied in to the shed. I know this was obviously the...

    Just went to feed my lizards to discover my female laying eggs!! She is housed with a male, but she's blind, and he actually catches her food and feeds it to her. I've never seen any mating, they are on my desk so I see them all day and most of the evening. She hasn't got any bigger and even...

    Hiya all. My 7 year old corn snake Levi laid 9 eggs last night, which probably explains why she was acting so oddly for a week. I thought that by now she'd be starving hungry as she didn't eat for nearly 3 weeks, but I left a mouse in the tank for her before I left for work this afternoon, and...

    To give you a little information on my hognose female, she had a clutch of 12 good eggs last year when she was 350 grams. This year she weighed 550 grams and was paired with my male immediately after her ovulation shed. They locked up and I left the male in with her for a week, he showed no...

    I've put the box in our beardies enclosure full of sand, soil and some vermiculite. I added more sand and moisture to it so it would hold better to burrow. She's decided to dig a burrow today, but now that she's dug to the bottom, she's stopped. Now I realise she may not be quite ready to lay...
  8. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    Hi All!! I am after some ideas for a basking/area for turtles to lay eggs. I have a 8ft by 5ft pond in my living room. At the minute I have put a tub in the water which is filled with sand I have had to lower the water level so that it is just to the top of the tub. and rearrange the...

    This may be a long post, so thank-you in advance for reading. My female veiled chammy has been gravid for a while, will still eat a hopper once every day or two days, and doesn't seem to be dehydrated, the weird thing is that at the back of her body, just in front of her hind legs it appears to...

    I was wondering if anyone else has issues with their leos laying eggs when there is no male present. I house my female leopard gecko alone. It used to be more or less an annual thing (around easter which I used to find kinda funny), but now it's gotten more frequent. I'm cleaning her out and...

    Hi all, Around Christmas I adopted my cousins' 4yr old leopard gecko and (stupidly it would seem) never actually checked he was a boy! Recently he/has been acting strange... Not eating, lying on the cooler side of the tank, standing up against the side of the tank (more than before), pushing...

    My rescue female bearded dragon came to us pregnant and we were unaware until she started laying on the 14th of June. She layed a clutch of 18. Just literally now, nearly one week on, she has just layed a singular egg. Is this normal? It's way too early for her next clutch isn't it... so could...
