    Definitely a girl. Congrats. The boys definitely have the bulge especially at that age. :P

    How much does the gecko weigh? If it's 25 g or over, it's definitely a girl.

    No, bulges tend to appear before 20 grams. Since yours is 28 grams and no bulge, it should be a female.

    Given that your gecko is female, she will need a comfortable place to lay eggs. Do you have a laybox for her, or is she living in a naturalistic vivarium with soil that she can dig into?

    Beautiful terrarium. She will have plenty of places to lay eggs in there. In fact, she may already have done so!

    One word of caution, though -- sometimes geckos can accidentally get sphagnum moss caught in their mouths and, because they can't really spit stuff out, they then swallow it and it can cause impaction. It would be safer in the long term if you were to replace the top layer of moss with peat moss (ground up) or sifted soil. If you don't want the bare soil to show, dried leaves can provide cover. I personally use the bark shed from plane trees for this purpose.
