There is still plenty of time to get some breeding from your
stehlini pair. Hopefully the male will behave himself next time.

Good deal on the Timon's eggs! When I worked them more
seriously my females would double and triple clutch and I
ended up with close to 70 babies one year from my breeding
trio. They can be so prolific if things are right.

Below is a picture of my young adult pair of stehlini. The male
is a ltc which I'm guessing is close to 3 or 4 years and the
female was cb here in '07. Moments after I took this shot
they bred. Gestation in the stehlini is relatively short (often
less than 4 weeks). This first clutch of 11 egg should hatch
in about 6 weeks since they were laid two weeks ago.

The females bounce back really quick after deposition so I
expect to see another breeding within two to three weeks.
She's already nice and plump as if nothing ever happened lol.

John
