That is a dark one. I bet he will lighten up some with age and moode changes

I'm sure, but I was surprised to see all of the gray tones. Reminds of some of your S. wyberba pics.

She and mood not moode. It (she) really is colored like caudiannulatus. I had two caudiannulatus hatch yesterday, and if I can get this new computer figured, out I will post a picture later.

Very very nice Nathan, had you had the adults long before you got eggs?

Eight months or so

Thanks Nathan. I read that they can take up to three years to reach sexual maturity, have you found this to be the case?

Nathan Hall

We purchased the female as an adult, so I'm not sure. I believe they can reach sexual maturity as early as a year, but I'm sure it is better to wait until they are 18-24 months. Jerry can give you a more definitive answer.

Thanks for he info Nathan, the article was written a while ago so I doubt much experimentation had been done with breeding ages etc.
