PTS Ultrasound Question


[ Follow Ups ] [ Post Followup ] [ The Skink Forum ]

Posted by FritzW on April 18, 2003 at 19:52:45:

Who on the forum has used ultrasound to determine if their PTS was pregnant? Was it an effective mode of determination? I have one female PTS (Grady)who looks to be quite large (possibly pregnant?). I observed Grady and the male (Tripp) mating last July and August, but would have expected young'uns by now if the gestation period is 7 months (which has been suggested, but not proven).

Also, I'm not sure my herp. vet has an ultra sound. Would it even be worth the time to have a non-herp experienced vet do the ultrasound? How costly is an ultrasound as well?

Thanks for all your help.
Best,
Fritz
