    EGG-BOUND LEOPARD GECKOS

    All female geckos can develop infertile eggs without mating.
    1. If you see eggs, add a nest box filled with damp Eco Earth's coco fiber to the warm end of the enclosure to prompt her to lay those eggs.
    2. A 1x daily warm 86*F (30*C) soak for about 15 minutes may help. Gently massage her belly towards the vent during that soak.
    3. An oxytoxin injection may help too. If she is unable to lay her eggs, surgery is required.
    4. If a female gecko becomes egg-bound, eventually the eggs begin to rot inside. This infection leads to septicemia (blood poisoning), then death.
