    Mine spend quite a bit of time digging. One of mine laid eggs this morning after spending nearly a week digging. When one starts that behavior, I weigh her and weigh her every day. When she's dropped 5-10 grams I know she's laid and I dig up the enclosure till I find the eggs. This doesn't always work. When I was looking for the eggs of the digging gecko a few days ago, I actually found 4 other eggs (there are 3 females in the enclosure). Two of them had obviously been laid recently and the other 2 were more developed when I candled them.

    Hi I can usually see the gargoyles getting fuller in size.
    Mine do tend to dig for at least a week & usually not too keen on eating much a couple of days before they lay but afterwards pig out a little.

    Most of mine are pretty obvious. First, they start to gain weight/get more 'pear shaped'. Close to laying, they get quite restless and dig a lot. I have the odd one where it's hard to tell, but overall this applies.
