I have had a few viridus, atrox,rubers,and specs breed for me and kinda have a good feel for it. But I have been working with a pair of culminatus for 5 years now and seen breeding the past 3 years but nothing has come of it. This time however it seems alittle different. They allways breed in oct or nov for some reason and this past year was oct 13. She has put on some weight and is now in the blue for what I'm hoping is the prebirth shed. I was just wondering if this timing is the same as some of you others in the field.
:A friend of mine had his C.d.cumanensis bred in early Dec. and gave birth in late May, around 170-180 days. However, some durissus have been known to gestate even as long as 240-270 days. Sorry for the conflicting info, it may vary between sudspecies.
