: I have 3 trios of desert HL's, but I am having troubles breeding them in captivity. Does anyone know how to cycle them and have any useful breeding information?
You need to give them a restperiod with reduced lighting and temperatures. Two to three months should be sufficient but I have heard from people hibernating them for 4-5 months without problems.
After they have awaken nature should do the rest after some 4-6 weeks mating should begin.
The female lays her eggs in a burrow she digs herself (be prepared to see your beautifull setup being bulldozered by the female) After some 8 weeks the eggs should hatch and than you need to get the young to feed. Keep the young somewhat moisterthan the parents because they dehydrate faster due to their size.
ps be carefull your female can't dig underneath stones
