Bertha's GRAVID

As I mentioned before in another thread (as well as in the chat box) my 5 year old brindle (with a few dalmatian spots) crested gecko who was breed to Lewis my male 5 year old brindle crested gecko, is DEFIANTLY gravid!! If you don't know what gravid is the simple meaning of it is she is pregnant. I checked her to day and I can only feel/tell that there is one egg but crested geckos usually lay two so I am guessing that the other one is in there somewhere.

I have to start preparing now I haven't gotten around to picking up supplies for the lay box or incubator yet so I am going out to Wal-Mart tonight to pick up that stuff.

This is very exciting (for me at least) so keep your eye out for the egg anouncment. And everyone keep Bertha in your thought and wish her a smooth gravid-cey (yes I know thats not a word but it is now).

Update- I added the lay box in last night. I know Lewis checked it out (and pooped on it and in the BROM) Bertha had no interest in it so I will be looking to see when she does take interest in it to know when she will lay !!

Some how I think 60 little copies of Lewis and Bertha would be a bit more than I want

Thanks!!! No the babies will be sold to APPROVED homes, in less of course a truly amazing one is produced then I will have to keep it.

**Update: In luck I managed to catch Bertha shedding... well actually she fell off a piece of bamboo and was struggling to grip the glass to climb back up (I helped her back into her tree after I took the pictures). She still as no interest in the laybox, but I did show it to her as I am unsure if the previous owners provided her with a laybox or not (she was keep in a natural tank before). Still hoping that she will choose the box over somewhere else in the tank.

And here is the pictures

If you look closely you can see the egg bump on her side


They look funny when they shed

UPDATE- She laid the eggs sometime last night I believe but not in the laybox so I am afraid that I may have jostled them around while looking for them.

Send your 'grow and hatch little egg'' vibes to the eggs please !!

Depending on the temperature they will hatch at about 60-70 days but from my reading people have had them take over 100 days to hatch
