In Reply to: Update: Female laying without beening with a male. *MIKE* posted by Gecko2525 on May 07, 2003 at 00:23:02:
Hey Liz thanks for the update =)…..
Pandora: Just let the laying take it’s course. She really is too small to be laying; ideally she should be around 50 grams. Putting her in with the male might stimulate her to lay even longer, so let her be and hopefully it will end soon. In the mean time just make sure she is being fed WELL with all her vitamin supplements. Also leave out a dish of calcium for her. She is still growing and is prob sacrificing most of her nutrients for eggs. So she needs all the food she can get.
Venus: She was prob just not ready for it. Let it take its course like Pandora. I have never heard of an egg bound crested gecko so I would not worry to much. Mostly likely she will reabsorb them. If you are concerned and she appears to have a problem you will have to get and x-ray to find out.
Rayne: I am glad she is doing great =). Yeah the eggs do grow quite a bit along with the embryo inside. If it didn’t the poor thing would run out of room quick…lol. 40 days is not unheard of she could still lay soon. The one egg might be a sign of lack of calcium. I would include a dish in her cage like Pandora. Use either bone meal or crushed cuttle bone.
Anyway I got to run my prep period is over, hope I did not leave anything out. Good luck with that fertile egg =)
