A few may remember my post almost 2 weeks ago, asking for help for my little Panther Cham girl. She fell Ill on a Sunday morning and passed away the next morning. I've learned some things so I thought I'd share. 1. When you read that females lay their eggs close to 30 days after breeding, that could be quite a ways off. In my girl's case, she was ready 11 days earlier, at 19 days after breeding. 2. Sunday is the absolute worst day for a specialty reptile to need emergency help. I am very fortunate to have 2 specialist reptile vets in my area, except on Sunday. 3. If I choose to ever try my hand at breeding again, I will make sure I have in my possession a dose of oxytocin for emergency. I am incredibly sad and upset at the loss of my little girl. I feel like i let her down. I did so much reading and research, but it wasn't enough. She was indeed egg bound, and I didn't really believe it was possible because it was too early based on what I'd read. Had I realized it, it was still on a Sunday. Monday was too late. She was too weak. She would not have survived to lay, she would not have survived a surgery. I don't know why she didn't like my painstakingly prepared laying bin. I feel like giving up already. I'm afraid of another heartbreaking mistake. I've waited a decade to do this little side-breeder hobby, made sure I could afford all of the equipment and had the funds necessary for care. All of it useless on a Sunday. I can't give up yet though. My girl's final gift to me was 39 little eggs. I'm not confident, given the nature of how I had to obtain them, but I'm going to try. I want to thank the people who were right there with me, offering advice through the ordeal.
