I lost my records due to computer failure, so I'm winging it here.

The 6.25" female was an adoptee, along with a 5.25" male. I think she produced eggs for a year or two before yielding one hatchling out of maybe 8 eggs. She's produced several more hatchlings (maybe 8-10) over the last two years.

The currently 7" female was purchased at a reptile specialty store about 7 years ago. She was 4". When she reached 6" she produced several infertile eggs. The next year (around maybe 6.5" she produced a couple hatchling out of maybe 7 eggs. This year I let someone else do the incubating so I don't know who produced what, but I'd guess she had some more hatchlings.

During this time I've been relying on one very aggressive male to father all of the hatchlings. He may very well be the source of the fertility problem. There will be another male next year.
