Mine wasn't supposed to see a male, wasn't supposed to lay eggs but seeing a male happened when we boarded her while we were out of town.
I have a book by Holger Vetter about sulcatas & leopards in the wild that states the first clutch of eggs are generally larger than later clutches & that the first clucth is less likely to be fertile.
We don't even know if ANY of our girl's eggs are fertile but with her first clutch the eggs were very large compared to the second cluth & all of the eggs in clutch 1 collapsed in the incubator.
Keep that in mind when another clutch happens & you wonder why they look smaller.
Good luck...
