Too little to be gravid

She is beautiful. How old is she? I have a 7 month old veiled that is close to laying - I was also surprised at the early age at which she developed her first clutch.

She is only 5 months and 17 grams. I know carpets are ok to lay eggs at that age. They are often bred at that age, but she seems so small, and I love her. This could be so nerve racking.:(

Laurie,

If it puts your heart at ease, my Female Meru is gravid and only weighs 18g, so I know your feeling. That being said, she looks great, so rest easy!!

Thanks Bobby, I am just so protective of my chams. Laying eggs is always something I just want done so we can move on.

If I were you facing a live birth I would pull all my hair out. But on the other hand, I would love to see a live birth. Guess I just want it all.:) Where are the pictures of your Meru? I need pictures.

Hi Laurie:

Your girl is beautiful. If she is gravid, she's in good hands, that's for sure. I'm sure she will be fine, but I certainly understand where you're coming from. The sooner its over, the better. Good luck with her!
 
I love the colors on the gravid females and yet i believe she is gravid. These guys mature so quickly but she looks healthy and strong. Ruth
