I have had a pair of '07 New Mexico locale pyros for the past couple of years. The male eats like a horse, the female has always been finicky. She will only eat live mice, and only when she's in the mood. I originally planned on breeding her last year, but I decided not to due to her small size.

I started keeping the pair together in a large display tank with lots of hides last year. Her eating habits did not change, and she didn't put on much weight or size. I noticed the pair mating once this spring, but after she didn't appear gravid at all I gave up on eggs for this year. I didn't provide a lay box, because I was sure she was not gravid.

She turned down a meal last week and started spending alot of time in a wet hide. I checked on her yesterday and she was coiled around 4 nice looking eggs. It's amazing what this little girl managed to produce given her weight and size.
