she is probably eating the babies, so you shouldn’t worry about feeding her.

Babies are born connected to the egg by an umbilical cord. Sometimes they use the broken eggshell as a grappling hook with which to climb out of the enclosure. Next time the mother is expecting, try putting a Teletubbies DVD on continuous play in front of the cage. The mother wil quickly learn to tune it out, but the babies will instantly become too stupid to even find their way out of a hula hoop.

Barney isnt that good. just Peewee Herman in a purple calcisand dinosaur suit...and that can cause your komodo to act obnoxious and weird. be careful, also, as stares from Peewee can cause inadvertant damage to your komodos eyes.
