If i was to buy an adult female from a reptile shop over the next six weeks, i'm guessing the shop wont have been cooling the snakes so would this be a problem if i wanted her to breed next year ???

colling is not always nessasery for successful breading and if your not goingt o do it until next year you'll be fine!

Next year? Not a problem, just cool her then...

Folks often give their females every other year off breeding anyways, including not cooling, to ensure they maintain good health 8)

i meant next year as in 2007, i have the male she's goin with but if she wasn't likely to be ready i'm not sure if i'd be better looking for a private sale where the owner may have started brumating.

If that makes sense lol

( but...... if brumating isn't as necessary as i'd previously thought then maybe its still worth a try )

You dont need to brumate corns for them to breed successfully so if you like this animal you should go for it.
I also cant imagine anyone putting an animal into brumation if they were planning on selling it, so you would probably be in the same position whomever you bought a corn from.

breeding

There are still a lot of corns for sale from 2004 clutches. You might be best advertising to see if there is anybody interested in buying the babies, before breeding. Good luck.
