    hi everyone,
    can anyone tell me what the time scale is from two cuttles mating to the laying of eggs please?
    also what sort of behaviour changes would develop in the female thanks

    Anywhere from a few weeks to a month or two.

    What kind of behavior changes are you thinking of. Besides laying eggs, I am not sure anything else changes. :D

    Thanks Thales.
    as for behaviour i was only asking to see if there was any changes to look out for closer to laying time such as aggresion , paler or darker colouration and so on , but if you say not much changes ill keep an eye out for eggs.:bugout: thanks ...... by the way whats an average clutch for s.bandensis??? thanks again
