Any one who breeds chams please please help me. My son is an avid herp lover and we purchased a huge cage with lighting..drip system heat ect. and a pair of vields. The female is now gravid and I need to know what to do. How to prepare for her to lay the eggs . Best way to care for them...how to keep them and assure the health of the eggs. any info will be greatly appreciated. <img src="http://www.faunaclassifieds.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'>

We utilize a 30 gallon trash can for a laying site. Fill it with 12 inches or so of moist top soil (so it will compact a little to give a firm area for digging) and fill with a small plant and some branches. Once she starts wandering around the bottom of the cage place her in it. Make sure to keep her well hydrated as the laying process is going to wear her out.

We use the hova bators to incubate them. Laying them in a tupperware dish containing moist vermculite (sp?). Sit back, have a margarita cause you got 6 months to wait <img src="http://www.faunaclassifieds.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'>
