Hi, I bought a gravid female from deer fern farms exactly four weeks ago this comming Tuesday. When I got her she had scares and her tail was a little thin but no sign of eggs. For the last week I can actually see the eggs bulging out of her stomach. Her tail is starting to get really thin. I am not sure if she eats but there is always poo in the tank. But I have a male in the tank that I have seen eat so I am not sure if she eats at all, but she might be eating great because I put a handful of veggies in the tank every morning and they are always gone by lights off. The last few days she has been digging holes but the male is also digging holes. Is there any way to tell the difference in digging for fun and egg laying digging. I give her at least one bath per week to hydrate her. Now to the point, I want to know how long she has been gravid. I had her for 4 weeks now, and she started to show last week, but this week the eggs are actually bulging out of her stomach. They look like they are egg laying size, in other words an inch long. She is starting to bask, dig, and run around more often. How long do you think she has until egg laying. I have everything ready for her. I will try to post pics soon.
