G'day,

My female N. Milii's tail has recently deflated. it has always been plump and full but over the past 3 or so weeks its shrunk quite dramaticly in size, like somone letting the air out of a balloon.

Could this happen when a gecko has laid eggs? She has at some point laid 10 eggs that i found buried in the enclosure, she was desexed before i bought them so all the eggs were infertile but it must have draind her to lay so many, could this have done it?


I have had them for about 5 years now, they have never had any health problems, they both eat well and unlike some of my reptiles these do actualy drink from the dish. Just thought i would get some opinions, hopefully it will bet bigger again in time. (her tail)

Cheers-

Darren.
