I have a female panther about 15 months old. Ive had her about a week. in the span ive seen her on the floor of the cage 3 times. 2 times today and once about 2 or 3 days ago. Hard for me to know if this is normal or if shes gravid as i have no base for regular behavior. Thanks for Your time!

I would provide her with a laying bin either way. Females over the age of 6 most should just have one.
It isn't too unusual for them to explore a new cage or go low if the cage is too warm up top. I would check your temperatures and get the bin going.

Baby/juvenile (<9 months): ambient 72-80F (22-26C), basking 82F (28C)
Adult males: ambient 75-80F (23-26C), basking 85-90F (29-32C)
Adult females: ambient 75-80F (23-26C), basking 80-85F (26-29C)

I would make the lay bin a permanent part of her cage, it ensures that she has the option to dig and lay just incase

Mine started going to the ground when she first developed MBD. Are you doing the calcium without d3 everyday? and with d3 and vitamin every 2 weeks? UV bulb?
