Hey there guys well i think most of you know that i have leopard geckos and well im going to use this journal to keep you all updated as well as a place of me to keep track of how they are doing with their growth, first of all i need some advice from anyone who knows reptiles well as, i got given 3 new leopard geckos from my fiances cousin 2 girls and 1 male the male has enigma syndrome and i think the smallest girl has it to but the bigger of the 2 females is pregnant i don't know if they are fertile or not as i didn't see them mate but she looks quite far along and looks ready to pop any day now she is a little underweight due to her previous owner not being able to feed them as he became low on money which is why i have them now. But I've never had a pregnant leo before and im not sure what to look for to tell when she is ready to lay and how i should help her along with her pregnancy i have separated her from the other 2 she came with and she is currently in a container to herself she has a house to hide in and a water bowl i will be putting a bottle cap with calcium in there for her as well but im not sure what i should use for her to lay her eyes in as all the moist hides i have are being used by my other leos also how can i tell that she's preparing to lay her eggs? The previous owner couldn't seem to get the eggs to hatch before when they had mated could it be due to the males enigma syndrome?She doesn't really like being handled im not sure if its because shes painful but when i do manage to settle her down i can clearly see the 2 fully formed eggs, they are very low in her stomach and look like they are going to pop out soon. What can i do to help her out?.... I would love for her eggs to hatch healthy babies but im not sure if they are fertile or if she is healthy enough to produce healthy young. the previous owner kept the 2 girls in with the male so they were harassed by him a lot so i think she may be a little to light to lay her eggs what weight should a pregnant female be? Any advice on what to do or how to care for the eggs etc would be great!
But apart from that my original group of girls are all feeding pooping and shedding as normal one of them has a small cut on her chin due to her getting spooked and trying to run under my cupboard but i've been treating the wound and its healing nicely the small baby leo is also doing well we still cant see what gender its going to be yet but im hoping for a boy they are all putting on weight and doing really well.
