:) a few years ago she did slip some extra eggs "after" she covered her hole. It was kinda cool walking out into there pen seeing a couple little sulcatas walking around. But I'm pretty sure I did t miss any this time

yep this is true. usually after they lay clutches i barrier it off just in case and then keep and eye out. it is cool seeing wee ones hatch successfully in the ground though. it amazes me how they can push through the soil.
