    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.

    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.
