I hadn't been back to our local zoo (Blijdorp, Rotterdam) in a few months, and was slightly startled to find the lesser of their two GPO's having rapidly gone into senescence and having laid her egg clusters in plain sight. The tell tale grey shade of her skin ("no mother could give more") gives no uncertain clues as towards the inevitable. Is it typical of captive GPO's to forgo building a den to nest? Just curious. Sad to see her go, she was quite sociable :sad:

Understood, just by my superficial(?) examination of the tank, it appears to offer sufficient possibilities. According to the GPO, apparently not.
