Unhappy horned mountain dragons

Hi Guys.
i was wondering if anyone new if a female mhd will stay near or even defend her nest? ours is a pair and the female layed 11 eggs oct 21, since then the male died of old age and now there is a new male as we rescued him from a horrible pet shop. since she layed her eggs she has sat in a plant above where she layed her eggs and for the last 2 days she has been sitting on the substrate on the nest. any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry I don't know anything about those but I recommend never "rescuing' pet shop pets as this only gives the pet shop the money they want. They dont care why you're buying it and if more people imagine they're "rescuing" their pets then they'll never be put out of business!
I recommend also finding a breeder of mhd and maybe asking them? I'm sure sticking in a random male would make me hostile and protect my baby too!

I have beardies, but I dont know anything about MHD. Sorry
Try to talk the pet store into giving them to you for free Thats how I got my first bearded dragon, LOL!
Anyways, I hope you find out whats up with your female. I agree, asking a breeder would be a good idea!
