Gather some information on Breeding Green Water Dragons

Although it can be a challenge is not impossible to breed these lizards. In my last article I talked about their care and feeding needs, so in this, I will focus on their needs in breeding. Picking up a breeding pair is somewhat difficult because it is difficult to sex water dragons, but if you stick to breeders how to order. To do this in a pet store of your own where the employee is not too sure I'd suggest looking for the following characteristics. Men usually have a larger sign with Combs about a half year old, and women tend to scrap them at an early age around 4 months. You can try to buy three Hatchling and take your chances but be prepared to hold the 3 enclosures, because once water dragons regardless of sex just does not come together. In about the late autumn and winter water dragons will begin to spawn. Then in early fall lower your light period, which is usually around 12-14 hours a day almost 10 hours a day and fall to feed about once a week. Heat must be lowered at night around 74 degrees and back up during the day on 85 for about two months and then return everything back to normal. When you decide to breed, you can get a little scared because men will grab the woman by her neck violently and pull away from his favorite spot and race her several times.

Over the next 20 days you will have to create a common man safe for pregnant women. This box should be about 20 inches long by 12 inches wide by about 18 inches deep and should be kept away from the water bath. Fill it with moist sphagnum moss and soil for about 10-12 inches and make sure mixture is not wet or dry. When picked up and packed it should not fall completely apart, or seepage water, so when he is home not fall back into the water hole or pool. If done incorrectly, can he hold onto the egg and get egg bound which is a very serious condition. When he is ready he will start his digging process, and then adding up to an average of 8-14 eggs. Sometimes you will see her dig another hole on the other side of the box as a decoy.

You can make your own incubator with a 20 gallon aquarium and add 3 and a half inches of water, then put a 75 watt submersible aquarium heater in the water. Put a brick in the water so that a plastic storage container can be placed on top of it above the water surface. Fill the container with an inch or so of moistened vermiculite (10 parts vermiculite to one part water by volume). Thermometer was placed inside the storage box and a lid with 1 / 8 inch hole in each corner is placed on top of the aquarium. Set the temperature of the oven until you get the right temps for hatching (84-86 degrees). Now dig out the eggs, which were very careful not to lose them all. Bury eggs in containers that two-thirds of the way the deck, and about an inch apart. In about 55-70 days, you should hatchlings, between this time you should check the eggs for yellowing or mold. If the egg is a yellow or mold you just throw it, but if mold is present, you can reduce the humidity by opening the lid just a few hours a day. I suggest you check out the eggs twice a week and make sure they are in a place where they do not get offended or vibrated.

When your baby lizards hatch sure to remove them quickly so they do not hurt other eggs, and as a side note, I would suggest putting some bark floating on the water in case a child decides to go for a swim. Place babies on their fences should be set up as adults, but on a smaller scale.The water tank needs a branch to prevent drowning and food sources should be size accordingly.
