Please someone tell me these are not eggs, just been up to Spike our `male` and found these in his viv .....

Would make sense if they are eggs as he has been trashing his viv past couple of weeks and not been eating.....but he is MALE!!!!!!Well i 99% thought he was , they are behind his leaves

If they are eggs please tell iam not to late to freeze them , iam so not impressed,mind you i dont think they can be fertilized as the dragons have not been together for about month and half 2 months

I didnt see them yesterday or this morning before 830am, but then i didnt look down that end of the viv just chucked his salad in , so i dont know how old they are

Infertile eggs - known as slugs - I'd still freeze them just in case any are fertile as dragons do store sperm. Is this the guy I I.D. d as a male for you?

Getting confused - I get quite a few requests to sex dragons and honestly can't always keep track of who has what, where and when!

No problem :D


So do i need to keep an eye out for another clutch and get a laying box all sorted?Or because they are infertile just leave her to it and bin them when she is done?

Did try looking this up but far to many posts 8)

She could produce up to 5 clutches in total so you do need to get a laying box together for her. These can just be dumped but I prefer to freeze first - just in case. She'll need feeding up now to get her back into good condition and the next clutch should be between 3 and 4 weeks later.

Need abit more advice.

She stopped being a ganit but still needs to put some weight on , the base of her by the tail is really skinny, i would say no fat deposit there at all.

I have been putting grapes in with her salad to try and fatten her up and also put her live feeding up to everyday,but she is not eating!Well she is eating a few mouth fulls of salad in the morning and then about 3-4 roaches after which she sleeps (she is so lazy) I dont know what else to do to get her fattened up

Pinky mice every other day for a week or so plus morios or superworms should all help. Don't worry too much about veg concentrate on protein with calcium dusting.

One of our girls does that after laying and it can take 3~5 days before she livens up. You may have to pop her mouth open to get the pinkie down her but usually once they've got the taste they quite happily take them.
