Possible gravid female

Post by ApathyOverdose on Mon Feb 06, 2012 9:16 am

I was checking my leo to see if she was gravid yet and I believe she might be. When I turned her back over, she got hyper and ran off my hand and fell about three feet or so onto carpet. Will this fall damage the eggs inside her? I read that leos are pretty sturdy but couldn't find any info about possible egg damage while still in the female. Anyone have an idea?

Eggs will be fine if there are any. If you put her in a clear container and take a picture from the bottom, we can tell you if she's just ovulating or actually has formed eggs. thumbs up

Luckily you had carpet, she should be fine. Leopard geckos don't like to be flipped on their backs. In fact it constricts their breathing. So it's best to be safe and put them in a clear container so you can see the bottom. That or stand her up in front of a mirror, and you'll be able to see her stomach from the mirror.
