I have had the pair together off and on from March 19. I never actually witnessed copulation, but there was lots activity at times.

She has had her second shed of the year, and one meal since. They are now uninterested in each other, in fact the male took his first big meal in a couple of months.

She has been constantly cruising her cage the last couple of days, and is not hungry. Today I set her up in a 40 gallon breeder tank with a lay box full of moss, and a dry hide. She has palpable eggs, and is very squishy feeling, but her spine is raised on the lower portion of her body. I think she still has a few weeks until her pre-lay shed, but I am not sure.

I have been doing this for several years, but they still surprise me with how they behave differently.

I can only hope he got the job done, and the eggs are fertile.
