Yeah, I had to go digging to find it. I have kept better records this season, so I'll load them up as they occur.

Young small kunnanurra kimberley northen mated between 1st of august and 8th of august,dropped at least 4 slugs and 2 babies on november 11 gestation between 1O3 to 111 days from first to last matings

Have a feeling she was premature though as she was the latest bred that i know of,starting after the big girls had finished being covered yet has already dropped whilst big girls are still cooking them inside

I made a new thread in the General Discussion Forum for the last post. That is why it isn’t here anymore. It is titled, “Is one mating enough?” I hope that doesn’t cause any confusion.

That sounds pretty much typical tiliqua gestation length

I will have to go through my blotchies gestations,so far they have randomly been extremely short,4 females under 80 days from last mating,one of which i caught ovulating

I think i have a few that mated at same time still to go so have been waiting on them to show variances

Yup, I agree. Very short for Meraukes (in captivity). I will post more information of what I exactly I did in the GDF once I know if Xaunder is gravid or not. Very similar to what the guys in Cairns do, and they also have shorted gestations compare to normal, usually.

Yes, speculation is due to the high ambiency or a constant heat source, which isn't only just Cairns — just used them as an example. More information will be posted on the GDF soon.
