I did like you said. I put her in a container full of potting soil and left her alone. I made it so she could jump out of the container whenever she wanted.
She stayed in for a few hours, and about half an hour ago she hopped out. She was filthy and covered in soil. I gave her a bath because she was so dirty and had soil stuck all over her face. The first thing she did in the bath was submerge her head up to her eyes and gulped mouthfuls of water. I didn't like that the water was full of dirt, but I didn't want to stop her. I was amazed because she never drinks water.
I just uncovered 13 eggs burried in the soil. That's crazy. Poor little girl looks like a skeleton now.
I put the eggs in some containers full of soil. I punched small holes in the lids, and put them in the tank to keep warm. I put them in the centre of the tank at the back (not too hot, not too cold).
She doesn't seem interested in digging anymore. I can only hope she starts eating again soon.
Anyway, thanks for your help guys.
