Hello Nino,
Been busy with post brumation, courting, breeding and
you name it ... lol.

Your husbandry on the stehlini is good. Mine differs only
slightly in most cases. Your temps (cage gradients) are a
bit higher as is your photo period somewhat longer.
They get two months cool down starting on Thanksgiving.

I can easily keep an adult pair in a 48x27x18 inch vision
cage. I keep them on sand with a few rocks, a low/heavy
grapevine branch to climb on or nap/sleep under, a good
size hide and a few UVB fluor lamps for cage lighting with
a 100w merc vapor basking light.

I feed a greens, veggies, ground turkey, tofu, fresh flowers
and yellow squash salad mix. This is topped with a few small
pieces of various fruit. Banana being their favorite. They also
get insects only as an occasional treat and a small amount of
banana/strawberry flavored light yogurt but not too often. It's
really fun to watch them gather round and lick it up. A small
bowl of fresh water is kept in their cage year round.
Miner-all (I) is my calc/vit of choice.

This pair is just now beginning to court so chances are there
will be some breeding in the next few weeks. This pair had
produced two clutches last season so I look for them to do
the same this year.

Note:
Hatchling and juveniles tend to eat more insects than the
salad early on.

John
