I think my stimmies are getting ready to breed this year :D
So... it all started a few months ago as I began to fatten my female stimmie up- she's now well over 350gm and was feeding voraciously. Our male began to refuse feeds at the end of January and has not eaten since then last week for the first time in 2 years my female stimmy refused her feed. I tried again last night as i was feeding the carpet python and whilst she was very active and alert, she was not at all interested in feeding. I believe this may be the beginning of possible breeding behaviour
My stimmies have never bred before, they are going on ~2.5 years old and hopefully this is the year!
hey lithopian we have exactly the same thing happining here ,except we know ours have mated as we interupted them last night when we went to check on them.Hope all goes well for you.
Awesome work. My female is greedy as hell (mind you mine are only 16 months old) but she is loving the food and He has not eaten for about 5 weeks, does not seem remotely interested, tried a couple of things too including temperature increase. I am hoping if I am super luck they will breed at the very start of the year. They are both just over 70cm and the female is about an inch across so another 8-9 months of ratey goodness might get my over the line, I hope! If not there is always the following year or the 10 odd after that
Awesome work tho, hope they breed for you!"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." Thomas Edison

Hey Guys! Thanks for your replies
Skelhorn, our male stopped eating at around this time last year too but our female fed the whole year- he didnt eat for 7 months, it was very hard to watch the first time. We were ready for it this year- though he stopped earlier than last year. Very exciting that she has stopped too though!! Woohoo!! zzzboa i'm very jealous! I will be checking on mine nightly to suss their behaviour now please please please please! It's looking good so far...
