    Default how do you know?

    is there any way to tell when a gecko a about to lay eggs? ive read that they are really active during the day. when she laid her first clutch, she was. but, the last week or so, shes been in her laybox and digging, but still a sleepy head during the day.. so, is there a way or do I just jave to wait and see? and its been 4 weeks since her last lay. thanks, lovelyanddekstest.

    So normally my female sides get really large, she looks like she's gonna explode, and then a day before laying all that fatness will go down closer to her back legs and make her look like she's a pear then usual the next night she lays. Sometimes they dig a night or 2 before laying, sometimes they stop eating, there are a lot of ways you can tell, if she went to being super active to really drowsy I'd say she already laid and is recovering from laying but that's just what I think

    You can hold her, as long as you're gentle, and keep her from falling. I'd suggest sitting on the floor to hold her in case she tries to jump. I wouldn't hold her if she's close to laying.

    When my female is 2 weeks away from laying I make sure I only handle her over or on my bed so if she falls or jumps she has a soft landing, she is absolutely restless and cannot sit still while gravid so it's best to keep over a soft surface
