Breeding Season Update

A lot of things have been going on here since I returned from my herp trip to California! 

Most exciting to me was catching my Uromastyx Thomasi mating. These guys have been a dream of mine for a long time. I did not expect them to breed so soon, which made this a surprise. They spent 10-12 days copulating mostly every day. I can't be certain they mated daily during that time, but I caught them several times and I was not home constantly, so I imagine they likely made use of the time. It's been nearly a month, the female has stopped eating and is digging like crazy, so laying is getting very close. You can see in the pictures below how lumpy she is from the eggs. 

Along with this, many of my geckos are laying eggs still. The nephrurus, the banded geckos, and the fat tails are all in full swing. Here are some random pictures from them.
