Hi Vicky

Personally I use the vivariums with more height than width.

STO's love to climb and sleep high, or at least mine do.

I have just been checking out your website, and you have some, eekk, they are adorable very sweet. Do you plan on breeding?

They are quite difficult to breed.

I have witnessed many many matings but only ever had a couple of litters. Both last year.

Am placing a pair together very shortly so fingers crossed.

STO's are very territorial an very aggressive to each other, even sexed pairs, so have to be very careful when placing them together and need to keep a very close eye on them for entire period they are together.

Hope you liked website. Did you see the breeding link on the STO page, takes you to photo's of the babies.

Oh and by the way if Amalthea has babies or ever has any get on her list. Lovely person and loves her animals.

Neil

Yes I saw the pictures of the babies on mummys tummy, they are so sweet !!!!

Oh yes I have been in contact with Amalthea after quite a few recommendations, but she has not babies at the moment, but is planning a mating again soon, so fingers crossed
