Yeah, I have read that they mate often, but rarely develop eggs. Good luck! Where is everyone getting these? lol

I just got them and she was skinny at first ( must have just layed) and now she looks gravid

right now they are on peat to rehydrate them they are all eating and rehydrading very quikly. Once established they will get a peat/sand mix with a moister system that I will describe in a later post (using soaker hose). these pics are from a couple of days after arrival

Thanks.

Those are reallly nice looking! They are looking better than most other holodactyus imports. Do you have just the two females?

I have never seen any hoplos before. They look like a screwed up fat tail! good luck with them, and congrats on the gravid female!

Are these what everyone is calling a dwarf fat tail?

I've had two females for three years now, but the males I got never made it. I'm still looking for a healthy male. Breeding this species is a tough job, mostly because of difficulties in finding healthy specimens.

Hope you'll have some eggs (and youngsters afterwards); it would really be great to breed this species.
