Tom,

The gestation for A. australis is quite long if I remember correctly, somewhere around 8-9 months. Don't qoute me on that though. ;)


Cheers.

Pretty sure I see embryos too. Their gestation period depends a lot on the conditions they are kept. I have heard of some taking longer than 6 months and some are a lot shorter periods.
