Hi,

I have a female u. henkeli (Levi) that is about 6 1/2 years old. I have never bred her - she has always lived alone - and she has never laid any eggs. She had a slight problem with a shed so I took her out of the cage for a little soak and to help her out a bit. When I went to put her back in her cage, I noticed what appears to be large calcium sacs on the underside of her neck. My female day gecko has had large calcium sacs for years, but I never noticed it before on Levi. Is it normal for a non breeding female to have large calcium sacs? It seems odd that I would have never noticed them before, but I don't handle her on a regular basis, so I suppose I could have missed them. She seems otherwise healthy, but she is getting older so I tend to worry more. Also, I've read that 7 years is an average life span. That's scary ... does anyone have experience with them living longer?

Thanks,
Lisa
