Hello.

Here are the details of the Hysterocrates gigas (Cameroon Red Baboon) Breeding session.

Species:
Hysterocrates gigas (Cameroon Red Baboon)


Date Bred:
11-30-2005 @ 5:00 PM

Conditions:
84 Degrees F & 55% Ambient Humidity

Species Details:
Female details: Adult 5 1/2"
Male details: Adult 5"

Pairing
Male had been inserted into the females encloure using the cupping method. She was in her flower pot hide. The male walked towards the flower pot that the female resides in. He started drumming and the female sensing that, walked slowly towards him.

Once finished, I took the male out and placed him into his enclosure for future attempts.

Breeding: Successful

Here are some pics for viewing:

Female has dug a little cove and is laying down really heavy webbing within it. I am hoping it is an eggsack!

Here are the details of the Hysterocrates gigas (Cameroon Red Baboon) Breeding session from yesterday.

Species: Hysterocrates gigas (Cameroon Red Baboon)

Date Bred:
11-08-2007

Conditions:
81 Degrees F & 75% Ambient Humidity

Species Details:
Female details: Adult 5 "
Male details: Adult 4 1/2"

Pairing
Male had been inserted into the females encloure using the cupping method. She was in her burrow. The male walked towards the females burrow. She immediately picked up on his prescence. He started drumming and the female sensing that started to drum.

There were quick insertions and the male took off! the mating was pretty straight forward.

Once finished, I took the male out and placed him into his enclosure for future attempts.

Breeding: Successful

Species: Hysterocrates gigas

Male introduced : 4 Dec 2009
Conditions : 72-75 degrees F, 60% and up humidity

Notes:


The male was left in cohabitation. I never saw any interactions between the male and female. However, on Dec 19th, the male was hanging from the roof of the cage. The female's burrow goes deep, right up to the glass, and I could see her webbing up what appeared to be an eggsac. I removed the male. As of Dec 21st, she is carrying the eggsac with her.

Seems to be a pretty fast turnaround time from male introduction to eggsac. We shall see what happens ;P
