had to go out and dig these out of the nest box this morning.
2 days after pre-lay shed. female looks great and ate within minutes of returning her to the rack.
This was her second clutch this year laid 41 days after the first. nest box is 8 to 10" deep (will go deeper soon) Currently sand, soil, mix. tub is setting on heat cable at one end. temps in the substrate range from 74 to 88. She laid the first clutch at the very bottom as far from heat as possible. 74 degrees when unearthed. This clutch was a few inches up from bottom and temp was 82 when unearthed.
It's kind of fun to dig them out!
Frank, you're a pain in the arse but so far I find that if I read between the lines and put "parts" of your theories to work that there are things we can still learn.
