So, another oddball situation I’ve noticed with one of my females.
With all my other females, after they ovulate they’ll start nesting and clearing out the bedding from underneath where they’ll lay their eggs.
This female has not done that, at all. I witnessed her ovulation, recorded a prelay shed, and she has been hugging the heat since then. She’s also gotten a little more spicy and will give me the side eye any time I peek into her tub for too long
She’s due to lay tomorrow. She looks like she’s gonna pop!
1 They are all different.
2 Do you have more heat where the head is?
3 Just a long shot, press under the mouth to check for fluid, I doubt its that, worth a check though, more likely the first 2 options…
I know that? This post was more to share my observations, as I have been with other females that do odd things. It’s fun seeing how different these gals act when it comes to egg laying habits.
The heat mat runs up the side of the tub right next to where her head is laying.
She did not remain in this position for much longer, so I’m not worried about her potentially having a health issue. She’s acting more restless and is poking her head around the top of her tub when she does move around.
Some other pictures of her shenanigans I’ve witnessed while checking the camera:
