:: If your pyros are big enough to breed then put them together, that could be one reason for them not wanting to eat right now, and also with pyros its best to put them together early, before their first shed, usually that first shed will be the females pre-egg shed, and if you are going to try and breed them then make sure the males temp is around 75 degrees, if males are kept higher than that theres a chance the sperm will not be viable, but keep the females at normal temps-( i keep mine at 78-80 ), well I hope some of this helps, good luck,
::Jeff Teel
:I agree w/jeff, many of my males weren`t interested in feeding at all post brumation.All they wanted to do was breed.Some of my reluctant females became aggressive feeders once they were bred.Good luck, Mark Petros


...Also some pyros need to be "jump-started" with fresh-killed
hoppers/weanling the first few meals post hibernation. I've
found that with age (ie,5-6 years and older) the adults get
less finicky. Scott Michaels
