    She gets really fat and starts getting aggressive. Once she lays there is no going close to her nest. She will draw blood.

    That's interesting. Where does she lay? Is it always in the same spot?

    She has only changed spots once before but other than that she lays in the same spot. She lays her eggs in the sand. The sand becomes all bitty and stuck together.

    Unfortunately not. Issue is since they in the sand you can't even see if thet ready.

    They normally gone after 4 - 6 days. So perhaps soon I watch after lights out to see if anything happens.

    Straight below the pair is the nesting area.
    This pair is really something special.
