They require no particular effort to breed.;) Watch out before you realize you'll run out of space for babies.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Lupin is exactly right, be careful what you wish for. Convicts are prolific breeders. That should have been prolific with a capital P.
