PostSubject: Babycurus jacksoni breeding question   10/19/2010, 4:35 am

are Babycurus jacksoni capable of parthenogenesis? or can they store sperm from a single mating to produce multiple broods? i have a female i got in January and she had a brood back in June. the babies from that brood are starting to molt to 4i and she had another brood about a week and a half ago, all those are at 2i but still on mom. she is the only adult i have and has certainly not mated since her first brood. am i to expect a brood every few months from her for the rest of her life?

I believe it's the latter. I think I read it somewhere recently, but I'll have to find it again. I believe they can store sperm and have broods, but there is a limit to the broods which is connected to their life line. I'll look this up later today unless someone can clarify before then.

They can store sperm but that does not mean that a population somewhere is parthenogenic, but the ones in captivity need a mate as far as I know.

I read a bit more and found that they can store the sperm and give birth up to 5 times before dying.

yes they store sperm.
its more likely that a single female breeding with more than 1 male will produce
by stored sperm rather than 1 breedin sesion but it is true they do store sperm.
