 Is She Gravid?

in the past couple of days she hasn’t eaten and i have read that sometime they wont eat for a few days before they lay. and I read that they start to lay in October so if anyone can ensure if she is gravid that would be great. she has been in her encloser with a male that is about 2 weeks older than her. sorry if they look bad they were taken on my phone.

She doesen’t look bad. Most lizards stop eating because of shedding. They stop eating before they shed cause they’re to eat their shed and try to minimize eating intending on eating the old skin. She’ll be fine. It should last 3-5 days. If goes on for 10 days,you need to find a vet.

no shes not in shed yet but yeah i figured out she was gravid. she dropped an egg in her water dish over night, i’m not sure if this is due to stress or not. she has dug a hole in the viv so i think shes about ready to lay. i stopped handling her a couple weeks ago and separated the male from her until she lays her clutch to help reduce stress also(she doesn’t seem stressed but it was recommended to me to take him out).
