You are dead on correct, they were acquired here in Kansas. Fort Riley, to be exact. My buddy caught them wild and I'm afraid to let them go, they have been in captivity for over a year, would it be safe to release them?

As for a lay box, I have about a 10x5 inch container sloped with damp vermiculite. The shallow end is probably an inch and the deep end, towards the back is more like 4 inches. The male gets in their quite a bit and tracks vermiculite around . Should I separate the two for the time being? I have noticed the female digging, however, I can't tell if she is feeling around or trying to escape.

I may have some issues keeping the enclosure warm. But I will be sure one way or another that the temps reach 115 on basking and 80-85 on the cool side with plenty of limestone hides. If I can't meet these requirements, I will place the pair in a 40g breeder. Initially, that enclosure was going to be for my Bearded Dragon.

"*** Make sure your girl gets plenty of extra calcium I dust the girls insects with calcium every feeding , making eggs and laying takes a lot from them."

I fed her a pinky mouse yesterday. She took a little convincing but she ate it and seems to have digested/digesting it well.

Is it possible to mix subspecies of collareds? Better yet, what am I to do with these hatchlings if they come? Do these sell relatively well? I'm not looking to make a profit, however, if people do in fact purchase them then I consider that a bonus, otherwise, I will have to separate the male.

Your website is amazing! I will be reading that entire care sheet tonight. I'm not sure how I didn't stumble across it to begin with, darn google... You have some beautiful collareds... I take it these Easterns don't get that colorful? Thank you so much for responding and for helping me, I am very grateful.
