I've had very few berried females. What i've noticed is even in the mid 84 or so it's still too warm for the larvae. Mine won't survive. They hatch and then die in a day or so. Anything I have in the 70's is still breeding especially the jars I have in the house. It's been consistent now with at least 1 berried female and at most 4 or so at one time. All the babies have survived to become young adults. Now that it's winter the temps are around 74. I had also read that researches had not seen the berried females out and about the anchialine ponds. They felt the water was too warm and that the berried females stayed underground where the water was cooler.
Nice data points. So you think the temperature plays a huge role on the survival. I need to turn down the heat.

Sweet. I love seeing details of the Opaes.

I once saw a video where you could see the heart beating! And sure enough I zoomed in on one of my Opaes and I could see it very faintly too.

I once made a video of the heartbeat. It is amazing to watch.
