:-D :-D YAY! well what you have said there makes me very excited right now, she is Extremely sensitive to the lightest touch, the last third of her body looks like she ate a salami and hard, I can't even squeeze just a little, also impaction came to mind a few times but she defecated... nicely... if I can say it like that.

She doesn't go inside the hide box at all she is just lying in the water bowl but am to scared to move her, there are no mites then.
I am just scared that she might drop her eggs in the waterbowl or become egg bound :s

The stress!

I will remove her slowly from the waterbowl with some gloves and place her on the floor and take some pics and place a smaller waterbowl in the enclosure for her.
thanks for all your help! :D

A bit more than a week ago, if I recall correctly.

Cool, so if she is gravid you can look at eggs towards the end of this month.

Good luck, let us know how it goes.

It's important that you note the shed dates. It gives you a rough idea of when to expect eggs. I have lost eggs from females laying them on heat pads or right under ceramic heat emitters. We usually set our thermostats lower when they are about to lay. We don't supply nest boxes. We do however leave hide boxes in the middle of their enclosure and they usually lay eggs in their hides. If she is hard and sensitive then she should be gravid!

What is the story behind this black IJ on your website?

It is exceptional. Has she been bred and is it genetic?

I bought her as a sub adult a couple years ago and got 6 babies from her in December, keeping them all back.
The babies are slightly darker than the babies from my other females but look more or less normal. Some have black patternless heads, hope they will go darker as they grow.
I will take a few pics of her babies and post when I get a chance.
