I have a question about the breeding of my brongersmai.
I've put the pair together from half january till half march, each time for a few days, and have witnessed copulations a few times.
The female went, in what I hoped was a pre laying shed, and shed a week ago.
This weekend I've offered her a small rat and I hoped she would not eat it but she did.
So I'm affraid now that she will not lay eggs.
What are your experiences and do you think she will lay or not.
As this are heavy bodied snakes its not so easy to see if she is gravid or not.
Here are some pictures just before she shed.

Hi mate,
i mated mine in November i think it was, and it took til January to get any result for me! i don't think that's typical, but it happens. in between, the female ate and i think even shed a couple times.
i gave up hope and paired them again but didn't see any interest (though they may've done something when i was at work or sleeping!)
all you can do is try, really...good luck!
