Hi James!
I have large blotched, Sierra Nevada, and Monterey's. Each species has their own set up and have had succes breeding with the Monterey's the last 2 years. I release the cb babies into the wild at a locality where I grew up that has an abundance of them.

Hello:happy:
I only have the 3 species, large blotched, sierra nevada and monterey. The monterey breed every year and I release the cb hatchlings at a locality where i grew up and where there is an extreme abundance of monterey ensatina present. I posted pics of the habitat that i release them in, in a post below of finds and habitat shots.

Platanos, please, do not release the babies into the wild. It is possible they could have been exposed to and carry a disease like chytrid, bsal, ranavirus etc., and when you release them they could spread it to the wild populations, making your efforts counter productive.
Congrats on breeding them, that is fantastic! -Seth

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated
