Hey! I'll try to get some pictures posted here soon, but I thought I would take some time and update folks on our Prasinus groups and breedings.

Sorry we haven't posted more info here, but with our fire and trying to recover from that (clean up, insurance, fire inspectors, the mental part of holy crap what just happened to us!) I just haven't had the time

We hatched another clutch of four eggs (five were laid, one went bad about a week into incubation) about three weeks ago. All four are doing great, feeding and being super awesome and cute as all Prasinus babies are. We have two more clutches cooking and so far all those eggs look great. All four clutches (the two that hatched and the two that are cooking) were from the same group of 1.2. We do have other groups and some of those females are gravid as well. We had a female go down to nest a week or so ago and she come back up skinny so I assume she absorbed those follicles.

All the groups are set up the same. The cages is 5 ft wide, 2 ft deep and 4 ft high. There are 3 45 watt bulbs which provide the hot spots and the room temps are around 78-80. There are branches and cork bark for them to bask on and hide in. We use a sand and coco bark mix for nesting. It holds burrows well and at least one of our groups likes it as a nesting spot. When I get good eggs from the other groups, I'll feel much better about our nesting mix and call it a success. Until then, I just say, it "seems" to work as a nesting material. They are fed a mix of crickets, roaches and mice parts (for the younger smaller ones) and hopper mice (for the adults). Lights are on a 12/12 cycle. The groups seem to be completely socialized, as we can move males or females around without stress or fighting. They all share the food, basking spots and hide spots.
