I have searched for information on breeding P. irminia but all I come up with is for sale posts and threads. I have seen that the accepted growth size is around 5 inches or so, and the lifespan is somewhere between 5 and 10 years, but other than that, not much to go on. How do you know if it's big enough to mate? How do you know if it's molted for the final time or not? I would love to try breeding but this is the only animal in my care at the moment that is big enough (I think) to do it. If anyone would be interested in discussing a possible trade or maybe a 50/50, I would definitely be interested. I would love to hear from someone that has bred these before. Experience is better than books in my opinion. This may not be the best species to start with, and if that turns out to be the case, I would like to discuss a trade for an adult that is easier to breed. I appreciate the help.
