Hello,

I have two Mali Uros, a male and a female, that are a few years old. Yesterday and today my female is constantly digging in the sand. I have them in a 55 gal. aquarium with playsand and large rocks. In the hot end basking area the temp is about 110 and it cools off on the cool side to about 75 - 80. At night a little cooler. They are eating well and no other weird behavoir. Could it possible the female is gravid? And if so how can I tell? I was thinking about putting up a hide box with a little moister potting soil etc for her to dig in. If nothing at all it will be a place for her to dig to her hearts content? Please give some advice, she's digging under heavy rocks and I'm afraid she my dislodge some of the rocks above her.

Thanks
Gabe
