Well I went outside today to feed my chams and everything looks normal until I get to Deanna's cage. I was getting ready to open the door to give her her crickets and I noticed something on the door. Took a closer look and sits a freshly hatched baby sitting on the screen. Have a minor what the heck moment. Then I started looking and saw a bunch more babies all over the cage. Went and grabbed a container and started hunting ended up finding 11 babies this morning and 1 more tonight when I got home from work. So now I have 12 more mouths to feed. Was really surprised the mom never went off feed never saw her in her plant and never saw her with any dirt on her after digging sneaky little bugger.

Awsome suprise!! Did she lay in a laying bin or was it substrate from her plant?

It was in her plant. I usually catch them trying to lay in their plant then move them to a laying cage. She was just sneaky. :D

I am guessing she laid them in October I bred two females on the same day in July and they laid their eggs 3 days apart in August. Then the one laid a second clutch in October. I though it was funny this one didn't double clutch well that mystery is solved. These ones hatched about a month behind the ones I had in the incubator.

Interesting.. like I said ita be interesting to see how many there was total.. i always think about how tough it would be for them to dig themselves out an how many survive the dig out cause like i said that's a lot of digging to get to the surface..
