Between Clutch time

Postby remi1 » Thu Feb 25, 2010 6:32 pm

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Hi everyone,

I'm wondering how long females go between clutches. I did some looking and found that a month was considered normal and expected. My 16mo female laid her first clutch 2 1/2 weeks ago, and to our surprise she started with digging behavior again yesterday! And then tonight she laid another clutch... I'm just curious about what is normal, and how long should I expect this (laying eggs) to go on? In other words, when do we get our sweet, care-free girl back? She always seems anxious now. She hasn't been bred, and it was my impression that females that haven't mated won't lay as many clutches...

Thank you!
Colleen

typically you go between 2-6 weeks between clutchs. And a female can lay anywere from 1 to 8 clutches.

Darn. I guess I'm used to iguanas, one clutch per year and then you're done worrying about it. So in your experience, will she keep this schedule up til she's done for the season, or is the time between clutches going to vary?

cool, thanks! So what about clutch size? Will they consistently be about the same?
