my collard didn't take to her laying box so i just dampened some sand down in one corner and she laid in there,what substrate do you have?

People will probably moan at me when i say but its that expandable soil stuff. I know most people put their rankins on sand but they don't come from sandy areas - one of thier common names is black earth beardies - which is pretty much compost. Is it normal for her to be digging for two weeks before she lays?

I'm not familiar with that soil that you use,is there any way you can dampen it down?
Mine dug for quite a while before laying so try not to worry too much just yet,how long has she been gravid?

I'm sure you've seen it in pet shops - its called forest bed i think. you buy it in a house-brick sized package! I don't know really - did'nt really notice anything untik she was huge - I think shes been digging for around thre weeks now (I set up an incubator about 2 weeks ago); but i do know that they sometimes test where's the best place to do it. Still kinda worried coz she looks exhausted!
