Most of these clutches were not from animals I bred but rather those I raised for other people. I only wanted to breed captive bred males and females but have had to resort to using a wild caught male as my females were not receptive to the captive bred males that I had. I have found that females prefer older males and are most receptive 7-14 days after passing slugs. I wait to breed my females until they are over 1 1/2 years old. My clutch from a virgin breeding arrived after 4 1/2 months rather than the usual 6-9 in September 2020.
