Bradypodion thamnobates born

The Bradypodion thamnobates babies have born today, are 17. They weight about 0.3, 0.4 g each. I'd like to discuss with you the best possible setup for the babies to breed them as good as possible, as some of them now are lethargic and don't move so much.
Here's a table with the weights of the females during the pregnancy:
11/1 10.2g Mating
10/2 12g
15/3 18.4g
15/4 19.4g
15/5 20.4g
25/5 13g Birth baby

I would try to put them outside as soon as possible, depending on your temperatures/where you can keep them. Full sunlight can dehydrate fresh born juveniles very fast, but a place on the eastern side eg under a tree would be perfect

Beautiful!

I have been dreaming of those ever since I read Bert Langerwerf's account of breeding them in the british herpetological society journal back in the early 90s. He no longer had them when I contacted him a few years later.

Lovely lizards you have there!

Wish I would have known that a few months back!!! Benny (eisentrauti) exported a very nice group to me last year but this year only a few people wanted them and not enough to bring them in I will keep you in mind when the next opportunity comes

Congrats, Eric!! Your adults are beautiful and good luck with the babies!!

Are the smaller ones still alive ? After my experiences with juveniles of livebearing species, it's always very difficult to raise them up. Do you know those feeders here: http://www.sprexx.de/joomla-391/inde...d=45&Itemid=63 ? They are nearly perfect for those species, especially for the smaller/unhealthy juveniles

Hi Eric,

Very good to see you managed to breed them. In contrary to Benny I think it is very good possible to raise those baby's.

I use terra's which aren't to big 20x40x40 or 25x40x60 and put about 5 - 8 animals in 1 terra when they are youngh. Further I give them mainly fruitflies and if they are really small some other small insects like the ones Benny send the link for. When they are a little bigger you can give crickets as well.

Good luck with raising them.
