But I do know that younger/smaller cal kings have smaller clutches than larger/older cal kings. In my experience with cal king breeding, I've found that the clutches get larger every year (assuming the female gets larger every year) until they peak in length between 4-8 years old, then the clutches can flucuate near their max capacity for quite a few years after that. They can obviously breed/produce for quite a few years.

An example:
1998 female hatched, kept warm the first winter. Brumated on her second winter. Bred her in 2000 for the first time:

2000 5 eggs
2001 7 eggs
2002 9 eggs
2003 10 eggs
2004 11 eggs
2005 10 eggs

sold the pair in 2005

I do not have weights associated with the breedings.

p.s. This is just an example. The most eggs I ever got out of a cal king was 14. I have heard of larger clutches for sure.
