My pregnant leo is overdue. She bred April eleventh (2014). She hatched probably in January of 2013. She was approximately 56 grams when she bred. I posted this 6/7/14 and no eggs. So it's been about two months. She is definitely pregnant and doesn't appear to be egg bound. Thank you!

Info on Lay Box
it's 4"x4"x4"
the entrance is 2"x3"
the substrate is eco earth
it's always moist

If you are afraid she is not laying in a normal time frame, then she needs to see a vet.

I'm not too worried. I just need other people's opinion on this and what to do. And if this has happened to them.

She could become egg bound so if it goes on to long you'll probably have to bring her to the vet but as someone said things can go wrong at the vet to. You can always try new laying boxes for her before any extreme measures. Sometimes females will not lay if they haven't found a sufficient laying spot. Maybe provide a few more hides with deeper substrate and try different things. Peat moss in one, eco earth in another, maybe some moss in a third. Has she been digging at all in her lay box?
