Do Sulcatas only lay on full moons?

    Earlier this year my Sulcata laid 2 clutches and each were on the full moon I was wondering if the full moon might have to do with her laying eggs as she has never laid eggs off of a full moon it might just be a weird coincidence

    Clutches come on average every 30 days, coincidence is that full moons do to.

    Mine lay about every 5-6 weeks. Moon cycle doesn't seem to matter to them.

    Yea that’s what a friend of mine told me that’s too bad it would’ve been easier to keep track lol but atleast after they lay it’s easier to keep track
