::Tuffilina layed 5 eggs yesterday after being lumpy for almost a month. She left an open area around where she deposited them like she did the last time like she ment to expose them to air. Unfortunatly I broke one trying to find them as it took a while to locate them. The remaining four look great and seem to be well calcified . I temporarily removed the male to give her an easier time to recouperate.

:Hi John, first congrats on the eggs,thats great ! I just adopted an unwanted desert ig, alittle thin but otherwise very nice, I really like him alot. I have alot of different types of lizards, this guy has already won a special spot !! Anyway, I was wondering as far as sexing, is it like sexing chucks (larger pores) what not? ) Thanks, appreciate it ! Eve

Thanks Eve,
They are great little lizards with the intelligence of a larger lizard. On sexing they are the typical things for males -larger femoral pores, hemipenal bulges under the base of the tail and a larger head. But if you dont have comparisons its hard as they have small heads to begin with. Both sexes have small spikes and posture with pushups but males more often. I found hatchlings imposible to sex visually. My hatchling from last year was almost 7 months old before I was reasonably sure its a female.
Good luck with yours
John Styner
