for those who dont know i am currently moving, soon all my animals and i will be together in the same place. recently it has been cool here so i turned off the a/c and opened the windows slightly at the old place. lights are not on timers anymore and the arboreal set up is not getting as watered as much as before-i went to go move them yesterday so moved the tank off its rack and checked on the male and female by moving their logs- the female was back under her main log and had 2 eggs near her head, i found the male under a different log. i thought this may have been a fluke of left over eggs triggered by the changes recently, but i had the tank in the hallway for a while while unloading others and i noticed her tail sticking out upside down! i havent moved their tank yet (except back into the locked room) and i hope the car ride wont shake down the new eggs, i will check how many she now has though just out of interest.

Interesting, another fall deposit. I wonder if the can double clutch with increased nutrition? I'll have to watch mine, though I have seen it in past seasons.

checked on her yesterday am and she was still laying! i ended up knocking her off since i didnt think she would still be doing it 24 hours later-i saw a whole new clutch about an inch from the first 2 eggs she laid, it may be my perception but the do look slightly smaller than before-then again that may be because they are newly laid....

Well I guess I am not the only one with a summer/fall clutch. Great news Paris. My eggs are still progressing nicely, looks like at least 15-20.

the odd thing is that this is my only breeding couple-and she laid about 5 months ago! before it was a 2 year gap between clutches and now she does it in less than 1/2 a year....

oh yeah, worth noting, again the male and female are shacked up together in the nesting area, they do not normally stay under the same hide together and when she laid the eggs she was alone.

Any updates? I keep checking my large female, she's full of ova, but that's normal this time of year for a spring deposit.

Too bad. Did the female stay with them long?

Ah, too bad, but at this rate maybe you'll be getting another clutch by spring! Click the image to open in full size.
