I raised my female B.smithi from a small sling. She is now almost 10, and is due to molt this year. I want to breed her because I know they are on CITES and it can only help to get more of these out there. I just wanted to know if she is too old to breed, and if not, get your males ready guys;)

She shouldn't be. they can live for 25 years or more. They do require a cooling period so it may be better to breed in the fall.
