I've been breeding moellendorffi for 8 years and now have a hypo melanistic project going on. As the pevious posts have stated, wild caught noellendorffi are almost impossible to get to suvive. That being said the original hypo female I have been breeding for 5 years was an import and must be at least 27 years old. She layed 8 good eggs last month. Other than the hypo female I have only worked with captive bred or captive hatched moellendorffi. They come from a relatively small range in Southern China and North Vietnam. They live at low altitude that has long hot summers and short winters. The key is they spend most of their time underground in lime stone caves where it's cool. I keep mine at 77 degrees for nine months and 60 degrees for three months. The cool period is also in total darkness. They are easy to keep and get big. My largest male is 9 feet long and as big around as your arm. Good luck, they are grat animals and really intelligent
