Hi and Merauke gestation

Postby kodis-babe » Sat Apr 02, 2011 3:45 am

Hi everyone I'm new here so sorry if I do anything wrong.
So first question, I cannot find this ANYWHERE all I can find is gestation is between 3-6 months. So is that for merauke's or is that general for Bluey's. As mine was due 18-3-11 and still no babies.
Thanks in advance

Hi and welcome!

I'm not the best person to answer your question, but I'll tell you what I know and others can give more details. :D

Not many people have bred Meraukes, so there isn't great information on gestation period. A normal gestation period for Northerns is about 100 days, so it could be assumed that Meraukes will be similar. That's why you're not finding very accurate information.

Have you seen signs of her being gravid? Weight gain? Labored breathing?

Hi and thanks for reply. I have read that they aren't really bred much but mine were brought as T.S.scoindes but I have been told by quite a few BTS breeders that they are Evansces. I just thought that maybe their are some breeders from other countries on here that have bred them.
I caught the male trying to get on the female quite a few times (although not seen them locked) She has a few marks just below her neck and he has some on his head (from her telling him no presumably). However she eats the same foods every week and approx 3-4 weeks into me thinking she was gravid her weight kept going up and down quite obviously. But there higher ups then downs.
I worked out a rough 100 days which would have been 18-march.
As of yet she hasn't started heavy breathing.
They are currently outside with me enjoying some well earned sunshine

Thanks for your help :D
