That is most likely the problem people have with this species. It's not that they are so tough to breed its that they are large and take considerable time to reach aviable reproductive age. Couple that with the high price tag and you have limited people working with groups and even then not groups that are at a good reproductive age.

I also would enjoy seeing photos of your breeding program.
