    If they are the same size now he will mature and die before she does. Unless you meant fatness wise haha. I'm new to breeding aswell and my first breed was P. regalis aswell . I have heard that they will lay a sac without an artificial monsoon/drought . The likely hood of P. Regalis to lay a sac with a mock wet/dry season is much better than not. I'm not an expert just read everything I could find on breeding P. regalis. Before you introduce male make sure she is fed and maybe thinks it the wet season for a month. Breed them. Cool her down a few degrees and dry her out for a month. Reintroduce wet season and that induces the sac laying. Thats what i got out of the things i read . My female right now is in the middle of the dry season and i feed her as much as she wants. Good luck .
