Grahame’s leopard gecko resting after laying an egga nd standing guard over it until it was removed and put in the incubator. Just had to share this picture as I love the way she lays there as if she’s been in labour for hours…….. not the case though I can assure you.
Notice the silvery sheen to her skin, it means she’s about to shed, they do this quite a few times as they grow into adulthood………..
Also note the cricket on the log, she’s too tired to even go after her food.
