Haha! Thanks, Matt!

And I consider you the lucky one - to have had such success with the situla and coxi! I haven't kept coxi yet, but may try my hand soon - but you have heard me whine about my experiences with the situla before. My friend, John Lassiter actually got them to breed and lay eggs this year, and two looked great - went full term and then died before pipping. The babies were / looked fully and perfectly formed and had no deformities - just weird... I think John took it harder than I did, as I was happy that the female even laid "good" eggs...

Also, it is awesome getting good eggs from the green rats, but that is the only clutch I have gotten this year. I put three pairs of Chinese beauties together, a pair of diones, and a pair of bimaculata - and all mated. I got nothing from the diones and beauties, and the bimac slugged out. I was actually sort of happy that the bimac even produced slugs, as that is the best I have done with them. This was the first year in the last several that I have not brumated my Asians in a refrigerator - and I think they just did not get cold enough for long enough in my snake room - at unheated south coastal Texas winter temps...
