    Pay attention to temperature, humidity, food intake and you'll be good.
    I would like to thank Steve123 for the slings, which were given to me two years ago. It is because of him, that I was able to experience such an awesome experience.
    Here is the link to more information in regards to me breeding them, as well as multiple pictures.
