    hey, yep i'm sure i have the sexes correct as i saw who was on top
    of whom when the mating took place. as well the male has a blue cere
    and the female a brown one. all 5 eggs have been candled and are
    found to be fertile....really weird!lol the female tries to sit on
    the eggs but the male scooches her over so he can do it. he hardly
    ever comes out of the box....they should start to hatch any time so
    hopefully there will be a change in position..lololol i'll keep you
