 Eggs laid over night

Have not had a chance to dig them up yet, female is still basking. She hasn’t even started eating yet, she must have just come up. I gave her fresh water, threw in a few fuzzies and some crickets. Once she warms up she will drink eat and bask for several hours. Waiting to dig always drives me crazy. the eggs were laid 43 days after last clutch, right on her normal schedule. I thought they were coming last weekend, that will teach me to stick to my notes and follow her normal time frames. What’s pretty cool is when I checked my notes June 8Th is the same day she laid her third clutch last year. Amazing she started mating on the same day this year as last and clutches are being laid on the same days. That’s it for now I’ll post back after I dig, take it easy.

Congrats on the eggs. How are the other eggs holding out? Funny how monitors get a routine like that.

11 of the 16 are still good, 3 were duds from the get go and 2 went a few weeks ago. I actually candled them the other day (something I said I wasn’t going to do) I left them in the container and did it. 11 had veins and dark shadows in one corner. My female is still out so I haven’t been able to dig yet. I’ll post back after I dig.

Are talking about your Ackies laying at 43 days? That’s getting a little late or your math is bad,lol
I’ve never had a good outcome going that late.

It’s 43 days from the last clutch, I might of forgot to say that. I didn’t see mating so I don’t have a exact number of days for that but she usually runs 18 to 21 days. I just noticed she was gravid the week before she laid as she is usually not out when I am home. If I had to bet she was probably in that time frame. Take it easy.

As pairs of Dwarf Monitors get older, you rarely catch them mating and have to go by visual clues. Good luck, Nick. Hatch em, dude!!!

No, you did say it. I missed it the first time.
Congrats though.
