    Default Helping a female lay eggs


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    My girl is now 2 years old and has been doing great. Last year she stopped eating for a few months, lost most of her tail weight (about 20g), then finally laid two unfertilized eggs. They were quite firm and the second had a good amount of calcification on it - more than I would have expected for a reptile egg.

    She ate like a pig for the entire winter, gained all the weight back plus some. About a month ago she stopped eating again, and now she is bloated, cranky, and appears to have eggs again. She has a dig box, on the warm side, that is kept moist.

    Is there anything that I should or can do that will help her pass these faster or at least prevent her from becoming egg bound?

    This is last years egg (laid august 10th, 2021)

    I'm not sure there's much you can do. Just don't mess with her and keep checking discretely. If you get worried about her because it seems different than last year, contact a vet.
