PostSubject: Mating question   9/26/2008, 3:43 am

Is it possible for a mature male B. jacksoni to mate with a 5i female and carry it through the next molt and eventually into being gravid? If so, how would I go by doing this? I know nothing about breeding and any info would be appreciated Smile

no I don't think that is possible... seeing as the female probably doesn't have all the correct... stuff yet.



or can they?

Females that are one molt away from "maturity" have been known to become gravid and successfully birth, but it is not believed that they can carry pregnancy across a molt.

That's just as far as I know -- maybe it depends on how far along they are, or maybe molting causes them to abort.

How would they give birth when they molt every month and the gestation time is a minimum of 3? scratch

i think its best to wait for the female to mature before you attempt to mate

I've seen immature females mate and I've seen them give birth and molt afterwards....but I'm not sure if they can mate and still become gravid after a molt.

My mature male mated with my immature female and it got a little violent. Trust me, she wasn't ready to carry his babies yet and she let him know.
