Wile I was out yesterday the larger female, the one in the first pics, laid her eggs, she had been digging the last few days and moved all he sand i piled at the one end of the tank, i put 2 bricks forming an L in one corner and filled it with sand then put a wider flat brick on top leaving one end open for her to dig under it but she did not use it at all, there was also a low hide which she did dig under and lay one egg but it was drier under it then i thought so not sure if it is still good but put in just damp vermiculite in the incubator at 84f. She laid the other 3 eggs on the hot end in the corner on a tile right near the light, one was broken and the other 2 cooked.

I was spraying the pile of sand and low hide on the cool end of the tank, but after digging threw it was still very dry so i will spray it more and hope the second female uses it.

And I am thinking of putting a small square container with a lid on it to help keep the sand damp at the hot end as well.

The female that laid looks good though, and was eating dusted superworms when i got home.
