Reproductive Biology

Reproductive activity is cyclical, peaking in the fall and in the late spring to early summer. A female has one or two broods per year, which develop from eggs in the marsupium. The young emerge at the manca stage approximately 0.1 in (2.5 mm) long. Larger females have the largest broods, and typically host 5-20 juveniles in their burrows, although some females host as many as five dozen juveniles. Some juveniles do not use family burrows, instead finding and living in their own tunnels. Juveniles do not grow much while in the family burrow, remaining approximately 0.1 in (2.5 mm) long. The lifespan is approximately 10 months.
