She is only about 80 grams, definitely not what I would consider breeding size.
OMG! That is a little girl!!!

I have a pair consisting of one 08 male and one 09 female. He weighs 115 grams and she weighs 140 grams. There was a third member (half sister to bigger female) but she only weighs 73 grams so I separated her from the larger two several weeks ago. The 140 gram female was eating a huge amount until just about ten days ago. Now she looks like she may be getting ready to go into blue again and she is seeming rather restless.

The pair today:

She is the one with her head near the top, and not in blue. If she turns out to be gravid she does have a moist sphagnum moss hide to lay her eggs in. I have not seen them mate, though, and the male never did have the usual lack of interest in feeding like my older male did this spring. In fact, this spring he has outdone himself feeding wise, which is a big improvement over his sporadic feeding history of years past.

So if a little bitty 80 gram female can lay eggs, I had better keep on eye on this pair; I too might get a surprise! Actually, when I look at this photo, he looks more gravid than she does. Now that would be a hoot if I had them sexed wrong and "he" laid the eggs! LOL!
