Hi,

The animals are 59 km south of Tel-Aviv and a big advantage for breeding the animals is just awakening from their winter dormancy. So you have to save the three-month hibernation. It is used to deposit a spermatophore that the male animals.

I have yesterday, all 6 animals determined sex, and lo and behold as luck would have it, it was -3.3- 3 female and 3 male. In 8 - 12 weeks, the first mating attempts to start.

Have fun with the pictures
Sandro

That's neat. That will be one on my list. I'm still gathering info and experience with centipedes, though.
