Congrats on yet another set of eggs! I'm curious, knowing that some species of geckos will lay themselves to death (ie pictus, levis, etc), at some point are you planning on warming her up to try to get her to stop? Or are you going to let her keep laying to see if she'll go a full year? I'm certainly not being accusatory at all. Just curious as to what your plan is.

She has gone a full year now. If she ever looks out of condition I'll try and warm her up to get her out of laying.. but mind you.. I've never bred her. This is all off of sperm retention from when Marcus owned her. She was shipped to me in November and has not been with a male since April '05. I'm keeping her going to figure out how long sperm retention can last.. or if it is simply temp dependent.

I am wary of over breeding. This laying took an extra 2 weeks.. possibly delayed due to lower night temps.

Yay!!! Keep up the good work. Make sure to get pics when they hatch as I'd love to see some cb babies.
