View Full Version : Is she ovulating?

03-07-2014, 02:52 AM
So I was checking on my female Mack Snow I just recently got to see for any signs of ovulation, since I got her a few weeks ago and she has only eaten one mealworm and I have offered various different foods. I'm not worried about her not eating because I know it can be due to stress if anything, but I thought I would check since she is leaning near two years old now. The one picture I have that I think is a great picture of what I see when I hold her a certain way is really blur, which sucks =[. I have a few pictures that I dont really think will help, but I am not experienced enough to determine if she is or isnt and its hard to take pics while she is squirming and my phone is in my other hand lol Hope they all help!

Btw, these are the two geckos I am planing to pair together. A male Giant Mack Snow (poss Gemsnow) and a female Mack Snow :D

I would say picture #2 suggests she may be ovulating, but I can't say for sure.

Yeah that is the picture that is such a let down since it actually shows what I see. Its so blurry but I have noticed when I take a step back its gets clearer (the pink outlining the white circle). Oh well I still have a month to wait till my boy is 9 months anyways :) I hope she is still ovulating by then! Do you think she would be or would she be possible developing eggs? Or is it a miss and hit since each gecko is different? XD I am so excited to pair them lol

They do seem to ovulate for the season (though 1 of mine used to take breaks during the season) and I htink the presence of the male encourages ovulation. You should be good to go when they're ready.
