My Name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest Reptiles and Reptile rescue.
Can you tell me about the set up?
UVB linear tube or compact coil, strength age and brand?
Have you checked the temps?
Thank-you! You should remove the sand. It is deadly. It is ingested over time can cause a blockage. It is also an irritant of the skin and can cause eye issues. I suggest cage carpet, tile or paper. The next issue is that we never house two dragons together. A male will over breed a female. One breeding and she can lay eggs the whole season.
As far as if she is Gravid, a gravid female will act like she wants to escape and glass dance as well as will be digging. I will give you some information on preparing in case she is Gravid to prepare:
The laying in the water is usually several reasons. The Dragon needs to pass stool, is overheated or getting ready to shed. At this point in time I would take a watch and see if all is normal other than the staying in the water.
