Do aeluropoda insignis hissers breed quickly ?

Recommended Posts

It seems that I have trouble breeding this species. For some reason, they don't reproduce or have babies as quickly as my other hissers (portentous). Is this normal or am I doing something wrong ?
I have about 70 of them and keep them at around 27-28 degrees in a dark room and give them a lot of veggies and cat food.

Yeah, that sounds like pretty much ideal hisser care. Do they have plenty of space? Moisture? A couple degrees warmer wouldn't hurt.

I have a thriving colony that produces more than I can keep up with. Currently keeping them at 27 C with weekly mistings. I also keep one corner of their 10 gallon tank moist at all times. Try banana and oranges. They love fruit. I also feed mine organic, pesticide/herbicide free maple leaves. They go through a small branch worth every few days.

I have mine relative dry (50%) and in the winter at only 23°C and 

they still produced babies in a good amount. 

Best thing is to look early for someone who takes the roaches

which get too many, in numbers for feeding purpose.
