Afraid to Lay ??


New Member
I believe my 14 month old panther is carrying a retained clutch. Six weeks ago when she layed her eggs, the tunnel collapsed on her & she almost died. She has recovered & is full of eggs to the point of dragging her belly on the vines to help support her weight. I've heard that six weeks is the average for a second clutch so I'm not sure if she is not digging yet out of fear of what happened to her last time. Is it possible that she is afraid to dig & how long is the longest a retained clutch can still be considered normal time. Attached is a pic of her just supporting her belly & when she moves you can see she has difficulty from the weight. Sorry,could not upload pic....
