That's good. I haven't found them to be a particularly aggressive species.

Thanks for updating me.

I actually have one of my females looking to lay eggs as we speak!

i'll sort some out but what I will say is that there is no right or wrong, its what ever works for you.

What has worked for me is keeping them individually and just putting them together for mating but this might not work for someone else.

i understand richard.
will keep her with the males for now and see how they get on,she's only young so no mating worries to worry about just yet,lol.
do these species readily breed easily in captivity then?

Well I've had mine since they were juvenile, bought off the internet from a couple of different reptile suppliers. My first two, where supposed to be a pair, but on arrival when putting them in a warm bath they both exposed themselves as males! I then obatined two juv females and just grew them up slowly. I lost one of the original males for some unknow reason, but the male left has proven to be more than capable, with both my females producing babies on a regular basis. Once they going there's no stopping them!

Excellent.
Wouldnt mind any info you can pass on regarding substrate for the eggs, nesting area type substrate and incubation temps and duration, would be a massive help thank you
