    Agreed Wholeheartedly Cin! I can't imagine what she went down to after the first clutch (if it was first..) - My new scale was still in shipment. I Finished my little story, I'm not allowing my self to be mad But simply shaking my head and wiping the slate clean. As long as she Gains proper weight and is stop laying by aug/september i'll be content I love my little Rye cakes and she should hopefully get right back up to 35-36g or more.

    FYI, geckos (and other reptiles) can reabsorb developing eggs (follicles) but usually only if they haven't developed enough to be full-term, before the calcium has been laid down and hardened on the egg. Once the shelled egg moves to the oviduct during ovulation, I don't know if it's possible to reabsorb them, and that's when egg binding comes into play.

    I have had this happen to me too. She lost almost 5g and no eggs to be found. A day later and there are 2 eggs but did not loose or gain any weight. I never mentioned it because I figured I must have done something wrong but now I do not know what to think.

    Ok, this is probably a dumb question as I'm inexperienced with this, so please forgive me.
    I've seen it with leos where sometimes, they'll eat and drink a LOT in the week or so before they lay...and then completely stop eating or drinking and will defecate what looks like everything they've eaten in the past week in the few days prior to laying. It was my friend's leo that I observed this with so I never weighed her (the leo, not my friend ) but she appeared to lose weight right before laying.
    Is this possible with cresties as well, and could it explain the possible weight loss?
