Alls you really need is a large tupperware box and add about 6-7 inches of sterile dirt with some moss in it. NOthing too special.

A lay box is for a female over the length of 18 inches. They need a box to lay there eggs in. If they dontí have a proper egg laying box, then they can become egg-bound. You need a large box or a large digging area with at least 6-8 inches of moist dirt for them to dig in. Oh and every female will lay eggs, even if they have mated or not. So EVERY female needs a lay box.

A lay box is a box or a place where a female dragon can lay her eggs. All females lay eggs, even if they havenít been with male. The box needs to have at least 6 inches of sterile dirt or something like eco-earth in it where the female can dig a nice hole. It needs to be moist so the hole doesnít cave back in.

No, the egg laying cycle is just a process. Females produce eggs, and if a male mates with her, those eggs may become fertilized. The eggs will not hatch unless they are fertile, otherwise, what would be the use of males?
