Elliptorhina javanica breeding pause?


Recommended Posts

Would it be harmful to put my hissers into a winter period? Basically turning off the heat lamp leaving them at 72 degrees all day and night? All my predators have gone into heavy brumation and I fear I will be overrun with hissers by spring. Nothing I have will eat an adult so if they mature as per usual the current couple hundred nymphs running around will useless in a few months.

You could try to sell them if you have too many, otherwise lowering the temps should slow down or stop breeding until you're ready to bump it up again. They may still breed a little at 72F, but it'll be severely reduced.

Yeah, I'm not a huge salesman. I sold a few to the local pet store but they put $6.99 each on them. Needless to say, they haven't sold any.  So right now I just bought a few more predators lol.
