The best way is to use a seperate tub for egg laying(large plastic tubs work great). Use a 50/50 mix of sand and soil, damp, and build about 12" deep on one half of the tub. Start your own hole going into the mount. Cut the top for the container in half. Use one half to cover the side with the hill. On the other side you can use a dome light with a clamp to throw some heat down into the mound. At night you can use a red bulb to throw some heat. This works great, and as soon as you can see/feel the lumps watch for your females behavior to change. She will dig, often not eat, and scratch around over and over. Put her in the tub at this point. Leave her alone in the tub, dont let her be disturbed at all. Let her be for 24 hours if needed(might only take a couple hours). Chris
