Weight gain is usually the best way to tell. Once the female has been bred, check her weight weekly and you should see a steady gain. Toward the end of term, she may "show" by looking wider than normal. One way for sure is to have the skink x-rayed at the vet. When you have determined she is pregnant, monitor her closely towards the end of her term. Supervised birthing is advised for these skinks. Move the babies to another enclosure after they have consumed their birth-sac. the bellies go pink
