    Is it possible for my wheeleri female to be gravid now? She’s looking a bit fatter at the moment and have just noticed she’s starting to burrow. First time for this and I wasn’t expecting it at this time (I have a M/F pair living together), I was expecting it around the hotter months (I haven’t fully researched breeding either) so it’s caught me a little off guard if this is the case.

    I think any Nephrurus will tunnel/burrow at least sometimes.
