This girl has a hard time laying eggs because her "egg canal" (space between plastron and carapace) is too small for average-sized eggs to pass through easily. About a week ago she managed to lay 2 unbroken eggs, but the swelling in her cloaca doesn't seem to be going down.
Has anyone ever observed something like this? Does anyone have suggestions for a remedy? IMG-2017.jpg

Coating the flesh with a paste made from sugar will help the tissue swelling to go down, then gently push
