How big are your adult females? It is common to hear Russians are smallish torts with adults being five to six inches. However, a few folks I have heard about that are successful breeding them have sexually active and productive females more in the nine inch range. Vic, can you back that up? There is also the fact of animals possibly being from different locales, and the fact that WC animals just take a while to get into their natural groove of things. I quit stressing over my pair. I would love it if the female lays a clutch, but realize it just may not happen.
