How many clutches can females lay per year?

Postby MorganaTheSatyr » Thu Jul 11, 2019 11:36 pm

Hello beloved scaly parents :)

Just curious as to how often a female dragon can lay clutches during the spring/summer portion of the year. My female laid 2 clutches this year (one week apart total 30 ish eggs its difficult to count because she smashed a couple of them in her tank) and I want to know what the norm is so I'd keep my eyes peeled.

Thanks! Hope you guys have a great day!

Hi Mori,

I don't know if there is a norm really since all females are different but I would keep an eye out for another clutch just in case.
There is a thread going on right now where someone's female is on clutch 4 of the year. And another member posted that years ago he had 8 clutches in 1 year from a female. 8 is definitely not the norm, but shows that the numbers can be all over the place!

Personally all my females have only ever had 1 or 2 clutches a year if any at all unless I was breeding them.
