I do know how hard this has been for you. I have used the bed-a-beast since the beginning with my dragons including the babies and haven dealt with dehydration. There is another thing to consider though. I had one female who never produced a good clutch. The first one hatched and looked normal but the babies died off one at a time til there were only 3 left. At about 7 months the remaining 3 starting developing deformities and I had to have them put to sleep. Any subsequent clutches perished prior to hatching except for one who looked like his feet were on the wrong legs! His head was only half of a head too. The remaining eggs were opened as they failed and every one of them contained a deformed fetus. My vet felt that maybe this was something in the females genetics as I had another female who laid at the same time and her babies were all fine.

I am so sorry to hear you have lost the entire clutch and although it is hard to take perhaps there was something not so obvious, like genetics, that caused them all to fail.

I hope we see you back sometime in the future.

Marcia
