The offspring of Oxypora lacera are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Oxypora lacera, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Oxypora lacera, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
