Get a tub about 1 foot deep and just fill it with damp soil that sticks together. She will dig her egg hole and cover it back up when she is done. Then just take them out and incubate them at like 84-85 degrees in some damp vermiculite.

:I believe my bearded is gravid and will be ready to lay eggs soon. What kind of substrate should I have available for her to lay in? What temperature should it be at? Should it be moist? Secluded? In the light or dark? Right now I have her in a fifty five gallon tank with one end set up with about six inches deep of dry sand. I have a heat lamp on the area to keep the sand warm. Any thoughts or websites with how to info on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

:sincerely,
