James my oh was lucky enough to pick up a breeding group of RGS at PRAS to add to his single girl. I saw them yesterday for the first time in their setup so grabbed some pics.

Beautiful! I love these little greenies - just wish I'd have had better info when I had my trio, and I might have managed to keep them alive.

Good luck with the breeding : victory:.

Wow! I love these, everytime I see some I get very envious :flrt:

From what I have read they are very difficult to keep, is this because their needs are just that hard to mimic or is it just very little known about their needs that keepers are just guessing?

Ye James lost a few before getting some good advice from WLW. The wild caught ones it seems nearly always die due to stress, parasites and that food in captivity doesnt have the right bacteria for their tums.

Ye again its the wild caught seem doomed to death. Hopefully keepers in the uk can crack breeding them and stop the needless deaths of wild caught (in my opinion). These have bred this year and James has 2 of the cutest babies so tiny and mini's of the adults.

Wait for captive bred ones to become available should have more success with those.

thanks for posting these for me, Jackie:flrt:
thanks for all the well-wishes...i've been passionate about these snakes since i got a few ill-fated ones years back...
this group has produced one clutch, of which i have two babies as Jax said.

i'll do everything i can to get them breeding, though they are still acclimatising. with luck they wont have been stressed out so much by moving that they refuse to eat!!
