And so it begins…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I recently picked up a small breeding group (3.3, or 3 males and 3 females) of adult reticulated Gila monsters so my dream of breeding these amazing reptiles is within reach. Today, with the help of a friend, we measured, weighed, photographed, and documented all of the new Gilas pre-breeding season. They have been in hibernation since November and were pulled a few weeks early so I hope what needed to be done biologically is done.

My original two males are still in hibernation until the first of March. I will be updating this blog throughout the breeding season to document my successes, and failures. I have my Grumbach incubator dialed in and ready so all I need are some eggs!
