See my female is 6.5" and weights 30g., but she is only 8 months.
I don't think I will breed her even at 14 -18 months because she is so tiny. Unless for some strange reason she grows.
What do you think??
Thanks

:My females are usually 7-8 inches long when they are ready to breed. I feel that size is more important to breeding than age- within reason. If you have a 10-12 month old female that is large enough and heavy enough, she's probably ready to breed. I'd say she should way at least 30 grams, preferably more. My 2-3 year old females weigh between 32-65 grams. Some of them are real monsters!
