Yes, she is with the male. I can't separate the two. She has spurned his advances lately so they just lay together. And he hasn't been "bothering" her lately. She has started to eat well again. Gave her extra calcium, Minerall-I, a dose of Vitamin D3, and two homeopathic remedies, Calcarea Phosphorica and Calcarea Carbonicum both in a 30C potency. As far as temperatures go, my lizards are not caged. They live on tables adjacent to casement windows. Suspended from the ceiling on chains are Reptisun's 10.0, with adjacent basking lights. The regular cage furniture includes houseplants, sticks at the windows, rocks, heat rocks, a water dish, etc. Since they are free to roam, they pick their places to sit. If they want more heat, they lay on the rock under the basking light, (which has now been dropped down from the summertime suspension from the ceiling). Temps range from 74 degrees at night to 95 degrees during the day. The lizards pick their areas. Too cold, to the sunny windows or the basking lights...too warm, to another area. For the last two days, the female has gone off feed again in spite of the ongoing treatment mentioned above. She also hangs upright on the window screens or curtains. She is FAT! But is still healthy at this time. Having raised these guys in the past, and seeing x-rays of pregnant/gravid females, I suspect that she needs the "lung space" and gets it by sitting upright. The first mating was observed on October the 31st. This sitting and the new disinterest in food has me thinking that she's about ready to give birth.
