Have you bred rattlers of any species? If you have, and you know basically HOW to get most rattlesnake species to breed, then you pretty much know how to get cerberus to breed in captivity. Except for some reason they are much less likely to breed in captivity than other species, even for those who know HOW to breed other species... like me. So it has been suggested by those who HAVE been successful with cerberus that you add an extra male, because that's what has worked for them.

So there you go-- anecdotal information from someone who has bred rattlesnakes, who has gotten information from people who have bred cerberus. This is as close to pure anecdotal information on cerberu as you are going to get on this forum, because those who have been successful breeding that species don't frequent this forum.

Unfortunately, that is the best I can do for you, since I haven't yet had a pair (or trio) of cerbs that consist of mature adults. But I am axious for the chance to breed this species as well. Shouldn't be too much of a problem, especially since I already know how to get rattlers to breed in captivity, and there isn't much to it, really.

But you have to know THAT much before you are getting anywhere with cerbs. So let me suggest that you first ask for pointers on how to get rattlesnakes in general to breed in captivity, then ask for pointers on cerbs.

Sorry, I thought about it a bit, and had to add to my last post, which was possibly unfairly sparse. I mean really, why would anyone care if you or I breed cerberus?
