    readsorbe eggs?

    Can a bp readsorbe the eggs. I had a female the looked like she was going to pop. Then she went to kinda strethed out for a couple days. After that She then went back to the perfect coils and was tail sucking. Well she did that for a couple days but now for the last week shes been mid tub just kinda lounging. Sadly i didnt note when her shed was so i cant go off of that. Should i toss the male back in or just wait it our

    I don't think they reabsorb eggs. Follicles yes. But once they become eggs no.
    I'd wait it out. The 30 days after pls is just really an estimate some can go over.

    No they cant reabsorb eggs, follicles yes. You probably mistook a large build for being gravid. If she was stretched out for a couple days with a tail suck that was probably her ovy if she was swollen in the middle. If shes lounging on the hotspot in a coil shes probably gravid now. I would see if she sheds in a couple weeks, if so start counting I would say. Goodluck.

    When she had the tail suck she was laying inverted or in a perfect coil. I had a thread about it and everyone said she looked about to pop

    Re: readsorbe eggs?

    I have the same problem here, all the indicators of gravid female are presence in my girl, ridge back, glowing, off feed, and everything you name it. Unfortunately, i didt see her ovulating, and havent got eggs as well. What i do is keep pairing, hopefully will see her ovulating or even better, eggs.
