That is really great to see. Lets hope it becomes as common as with other lizards in Europe.

I am sure you are hoping to see a Netherlands-Germany final?

Ah...Man !!!You are sooooo lucky !VERY WELL DONE !!!
I have bred them 3-4 times now but for some weird reason the babies never made it...A friend of mine now owns my adults and they are in a open enclosure so hopefully he'll be successful haha...
Some babies that didnt make it...Died about 3 hours after birth...

Well done Cordylus3, nice to see these lizards being bred in captivity. Did you give them a winter cooling period or allow them to brumanate, if so for how long and at what temperature? Please let us know about the babies progress.

Hi all
Sorry to react so late, tought i had the topic on automatic notification...
Anyway babys doing graete, can see them grow.
As with my cataphractus i dont give the parents a wintercooling period i experimented with it some years ago and dit not notice any effect good or bad on breeding succes. matings takes place like clockwork and eventual birhts also, altough we have seasonal flip overs when we have winter you guys have summer.
have to notice that the mossambicus is a very agressive species even towards male femal, female female and of course male male even the young should be brought up seperatly althus avoiding stress that can eventualy couse death.
terrarium with a pair should be big enough with at least two basking areas were they cant see each other and more importend lots of cracks to hide.

Hi
Mossambicus is a very shy species that and the fact that they are a agessive species could lead to some dissapointments keeping them in captyvity.
but they are beautifull
As to update the pictures, the young ones havent changed much than in size.
can post some pics of the parents and housing of the offspring. all are seperatly housed, the furniture rather spartan.
Some notes on de feeding regime
feeding one cricket a day powderd with vitamin/calc. suppl. , one day fasting on the fasting day spraying and watering with vitamin/calc. solution. On the other days no water is provided.

babys are five months now and grown from 1 a 2 grams to 10 a 11 grams. open terrarium has proven not to be wise the cat killed one, killing the cat wasnt a option keeping the peace at home i made other temporary terrariums insted.
to all a greate 2011!!

Cordylus3, any news on these guys progress? What are your basking spot temps and are you using UVB lighting for them as I only see one spot light in the pictures of your juvenile set ups?

they turned out to be 3 males and 2 females
The temp directly under the spotlicht would be about 40 degrees centegrade we do not use any extra uv lightning its proven to be o.k this way. Some species are now in there third generation and we had never experianced any problems coused by absence of extra u.v.
In some set ups we use in adission to the normal spots halogeen spots but we dont experiance any pro or minus efffect.
We do however use extra attention to calcium vitamins and food quality..........also dont let them grow up to quikly this might cous difformaties.
Sorry about my bad enlisch to lasy to look every word up, hope its clear enough :-)
