Yesterday I felt some eggs in this female of R. punctularia. And today she laid 5 big eggs.
Hope to get some hatchlings!

First “success” with breeding P. nanus.
Unfortunately the animal hatched with a very very big yolk sack. It is alive but I don’t know if it survive... hope the best.

Yes. So the animals survived the night. It’s out of the egg but still connected with the egg. So let’s see!
