"I always assumed that the sudden appearance of more baby russians was due to more people like me having some luck. There must be actual proof of this injection hypothesis, other than saying "it makes sense", right?"

brad -- i couldn't agree more! we can round and round adding more and more notions to this series of guesses.

i've been producing 11-20 hatchlings each year for eight years. last year there were maybe 6-7 of us offering babies on KS.com. that number has jumped this year (i'm offering 16 currently), but so have the number of people on RT.org that have successfully hatched eggs this year. it went from three breeders last year to over a dozen this year.

unless someone (e.g. mr. importer-OXY-injector) is hoarding all the large reproductive females, then i doubt that the little girls i see in petco are able to produce these sudden hatchlings.

i would like to hear from the person who actually did the injections before this idea becomes another addition to the enormous amount of lore being created on a daily basis.
