    Default Ovulation?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello everybody!
    My name is Dawid and I've been observing a behavior on my leopard gecko lately that makes me a little startled.
    It has started, that for some time (I guess for about two or three weeks) the eating has stopped completely. In addition, she looks pretty restless for some time. She walks around a lot and digs or even tries to do so by, for example, staying in the water bowl and "digging" there. Since she never had contact with a male, I assume that she is about to develop wax eggs...
    The animal was born on 16.07.2017, so definitely already adult. Her weight at the last measurement was about 30g (yes, she is relatively puny). I had been able to determine this weight directly after the hibernation at the end of February. This weight she had before hibernation, so everything seems to be alright with her.
    I have to say that she has always been not the best eater. That also explains her relatively light weight ...
    I still keep the animal in quarantine in a plastic box with "dry" hiding places in the warmest area and a wetbox with moist coconut in the cooler area. The temperature in the warmest range is 30-33 degrees, the coolest point is about 24 degrees.
    Calcium is always ready in a bowl and it is also supplemented. Vitamins are available via Herpetal Complete T. Both additives are always available alternately. Every 2-3 days (dubia roaches, crickets, grasshoppers, mealworms) are fed.
    I do spray very, very rarely, since she has the wetbox in the box.

    Here are two photos of her. One shows the probable ovulation.

    Thanks a lot!

    Yes, she's ovulating. Keep offering and she'll eventually eat again.
