In Reply to: Arboreal Viper Multiple generation query... posted by SRX on March 24, 2003 at 17:09:39:
:Just curious in longevity records or reproduction records on the following species. Would anyone like to share whether they have produced at least one generation or multi-generation breedings of the following? Not trying to pry into peoples lives, just interested in TRUE captive breedings of Arboreal vipers; not gravid imports.
:B. schlegellii(David Kornely, Shawn Mader, Jim Cambell)
:B. marchii(anyone had any consistency with these?)
:A. ceratophora(Jim Cambell)
:A. squamiger(Shawn Mader, Derek Morgan?)
:A. chloroechis(Shawn Mader, Derek Morgan?)
:A. hisipidus(???any made it past 2yrs in captivity???)
:T. waglerii(F1 at least...not a gravid import, F2??)
:T. trigonocephalis(David Kornely?)
I have also been fortunate enough to produce litters of both eyelash and trim trigs consistently over the past years. I have to agree with Derek...as far as I know, no-one has produced CB ceratophora offspring yet. But I wouldn't doubt it if Jim has or will be the first to do so. Darren Paolini is another name abscent from the list. He works pretty extensively with Trimeresaurus, among others, and used to contribute to this forum quite a bit. I think any species on your list that has not been produced successfully yet, could and will be bred in captivity in the very near future. Unfortunately, in the case of some species, it's hard to obtain WC individuals that aren't stressed out past the point of proper acclimation and clean up. Same old song and dance I suppose. Take care,
