Glen,
Did you note the date of her post ovulation shed? I talked to a well renowned Emerald breeder and this is what he told me:
"You have to write down the date you see her the biggest and the post ovulatory shed date, which comes anywhere from 20 to 30 days later. After the shed, depending on how hot you cook her, it's approx. 130 - 148 days. I like to see upper 130's or low 140's myself. Be patient and good luck."
His referance to "cooking her" is obviously the ambient temps.LOL
I have been told that higher temps will give a better ratio of females in the offspring. We put Velvets DTH's at 87 and her NTL's at 82.
We also put some "climbing" apparatus on the cage bottom for the neos, should she drop when we're not here. We use water as a substrate. The female basin that had a litter for us last March, dropped her tail to the cage bottom to deliver. We didn't have anything for the neos to climb on, so they got on the top sides of the slide-out, water trays. The pic is from her delivery.
