Hi! Thanks for all the info. She was in a 48"x24"x24" container with a male. They've been together for five years or so with no egg laying or reproductive activity, though I've not really tried to promote it. That cage had an ambient temp of around room temp with a basking spot in the 90-100 range.

She had trouble with her last shed getting the skin off the underside of her toes so she wasn't able to climb around and get to the basking spot, hence the inability to metabolize the calcium. I have her in her own tank now with the appropriate temperature and a UV bulb. I'm feeding her baby food, peach mainly with a mix of 1:1 herptivite:repcal supplements once a week added. Aside from the giant ball she is acting normal and she doesn't seem to be having any issues processing the food. Should I hold off on supplementation until this calcium rock is dissolved?
