Probing is not accurate in any of the plated lizard species due to the anatomy and strenght of muscles in the tail and clocal area. Sexual maturity is around 4 years old. Depending on if they are imports or captive bred animals will have definate impact on their breeding season. Seasonal barometric pressure and humidity in the US in opposite of Africa & Madagascar. Imports take a year or two to aclimate. When your breeding groups are ready, both species will have waxy secretions from the femoral pores. Females smaller pores with bulb like secretion, males with larger pores and long secretions. These secretions produce scents which attract females in the breeding season.
I have used 3" aspen substrate with cork bark rounds & flats for setup, with spot lights and two UV florescent lights the length of cage. A rubbermaid box containing soil & sand mix with moss as a nest box.
