    I will be attempting my first breeding this weekend. I had my one of my first Ts molt our and be a mature male. Found a mature female and few days later. Female seems to know the male is around and has been drumming. Will be posting updates here.

    I’m going to try and get video of the breeding. But my main focus is to get it done and make sure the male doesn’t get chomped.

    exactly the same scenario I had with a Genic pairing. I was videoing that, after 18 minutes of courtship (lucky girl btw!!!) it appears he did the job and then the female decided to pounce! last few seconds of video is me scrambling for the net and catch cups while saying lots if naughty words that rhyme with "oh ducking hell, where the truck is the net"....LOL.

    I’m pushing back the breeding attempt to this coming weekend. Kinda got caught up with other things and didn’t have the time to do it.

    Well first attempt was a fail. Male kept running away and out of the females enclosure . Going to try again next week when I have off work for the holiday.

    I know some genera cohabitate well together. Does anyone know if versi’s Do? If so I’d make sure she is well fed then leave him for a good bit.

    I’ve fed her a few superworms like a week ago. She is very receptive of the male but the male was scared. Hopefully things work out better over the weekend.

    I have tried for a 3rd time. Both recent times they locked up. Not 100% sure on any insert. I am going to try again later in the week for a fourh time.

    Sounds like your male is getting more courageous.

    It’s been like an off on thing. The first attempt he wanted nothing to do with her. The second time he was much more responsive at it lasted a while.
    This last time was a mixed bag. I’m going to give it a final go Sunday. I also working on doing 50/50s with him incase it doesn’t work out for me with this male.
    Im not trying to be a breeder. Just want to dabble in it with species I enjoy and try to help make more for more people to enjoy them as well.:)
    But i’d like it to work out for me to gain experience as a keeper and to have more of coarse,haha!
