In Reply to: OMG! My female is laying right now! She was gravid 50 days! posted by Gecko2525 on January 14, 2003 at 19:19:37:
:She was gravid after all. 50 days later!! WoW I really was beginning to wonder, but I really had a gut feeling she was gravid (mother instincts I guess :)). 50 days is a long time. This is her second clutch. I have the egg box ready and the incubator running now. Mmmm not too excited eh? LOL
:It must have been my temperatures. They have been at 77 - 79 for a couple of days, plus I just re- moisted it this morning and I even re-dig her dug holes. She probably thought it was perfect!! ....I'm bouncing of the walls now. This is my first set of eggs as a breeder. Now all the real hard work really begins. LOL I noticed her in there at about 7:15 - 7:30. Normally she doesn't get up until like 1:00am so when I went to drop some crickets in there for her I noticed she was in the nest box in some weird position. I looked in confused and noticed she was kind of in a trance and her entire butt was covered with husk. I could only see her mid way up. I didn't put the crickets in though. I slowly closed the door RAN down stairs and danced around with my mom for a minute screaming "I have eggs!! I have eggs!" *soon* Kind of childish, but really funny. LOL
:It should be interesting if they are fertile because I bought her gravid and I don't know who the Daddy is or what he looks like.
:**How long does it normally take for her to actually lay the eggs????**
:Who would have thought Mike??? We both weren't sure. :)
:Thanks for EVERYONES help. Especially Mike and RhacsRsweet for all my annoying questions. I'll keep you posted on the eggs.
