In general, is there a certain amount of time that is long enough or is it really species specific? I am wondering if 6-8 weeks is long enough or is longer better. For Eumeces schneideri and Egernia striolata.

I am wondering if it is like plants. As long as you cool them down to a certain temp it will trip those hormones to kick into gear once you start warming them up again. Or is the daylength changing critical too. I'm thinking that it must be species specific. Schneider's skinks are so dang tough to breed, I want to crack the code!
