What to you mean?

Spawn more than once during their life or embraces per session?

Males and females both can spawn many times during their life

Males are ready to spawn again as soon as another female presents herself even if he has a nest full of eggs IME-but best to wait...

It best to wait at least 3 days between spawns with female-but they can spawn again in 24h if she is well conditioned and willing- although not recommended.

During the spawning event itself they may embrace many times-hard to give a number because I have never counted how many times they embrace just hours they took to spawn per session and that can vary from 30min to 10 hours in my experience and I have had them stop and take a break and start up again too.
