I'd also like to add this, trying to maintain neutrality.
There are a few people on this board who think that you need to be a bloody herpetologist in order to undertake a breeding project. It's not something that requires a 7 year PhD to do. But, even in my case, I'm getting into breeding because there are a LOT of experienced breeders in my city who are more than happy to lend a hand or a word of advice.
Snakemann, I don't give a rat's furry butt how old you are. If you want to undertake a breeding project, just make sure you've got someone experienced in your area to lend you a hand. I'm 27 years old, and even I wouldn't undertake this without help.
If you have the support, I say breed some herps!
