This morning I was shocked when I was looking in the terrarium. I know that my female was pregnant but she still did not start to grab in the sand.
This night, she has fallen down three eggs from the highest tree. That´s so bad! ! ! All three were laying free in the sand :(

Have you heard and seen that before? It would be her 4th time of laying eggs. What could be the reason for that behaviour?

Hello,
yes I know this behavior.
If the female did not find an adequat nesting place or the temperature is too low or she has to much stress, then she will drop the eggs anywhere.
You wrote she laid 4 times and was this the first time that she droped the eggs?

Hello Jürgen,

thank you for your answer. It is curious because she has never been on the ground to grab. Further more the temperature was higher than at the last time because of the temperature outside (last time it was the end of dec).
Yes, it was her 4th time laying eggs and the first time she dropped it.
The 1st and 2nd time at the owner before and the 3rd in dec in the same terrarium she is living now and dropped them.

Regards

André

Hello, are you sure that she laid all eggs ?
Were the eggs fertiled or not ?

Hello,
I think they were fertiled, yes.
I have not been at the doctor with her but she is very thin. But I also think that I would not see it if there is one egg in.
By the way, she has not eaten any insects since laying the eggs - she only drinks every evening.

*Update*
The doctor could not find anything. But the look for a last egg in her was not easy because of the type of scurfs the fidjis have. Now, I am injecting her every day a coctail of calcium and so on.
But the problem is that she is still sleeping a lot and do not want any insects. I am afraid that she probably has an egg in her. Her weight is 84 g and nothing changed since the last test an saturday.
Further more the colour is normal; not dark or something else.

What do you think?

Hello Andre,

is the doctor a right doctor for reptiles? Where do you come from?
In Düsseldorf (Germany) is Dr. Biron he is an very good doctor for reptiles! In the Internet you will find the adress. I go with my Fidjis also to him.
I hope it will be better with your female!

regards
Frank

Hello,
when she is still not feeding, then there is something wrong.
I think that she has still not laid all eggs, especially when she is sleeping all the time.
Eggs at this size are good visible on the X-ray from the top and the side.
You should visit a Vetenarian, who is specialized for reptiles.
Good luck !
regards
Jürgen

Hello,

my female died this weekend.
The last three weeks I have been at the last doc of the Zoo of Frankfurt Dr. Geyer. We tried everything but in the end there was no success.
The finally reason for her death is not known.

So, now I have a beautiful male but no more female and I must think about what to do now.

Thanks for your help and good advices.

Regards

André
