She laid a cool 14 eggs 2 bad and all remaining 12 hatched fine, she is the only snake in the collection that will coil and protect her eggs with bluff strikes.

she is close on six feet long.


steve never give up on the oldies, iv always got bigger eggs and bigger babys from the olduns, and the female oldies dont dart of when a male approches like the youngsters do.

wow thats amazing mate.
my oldest is a 16 year old male anery.
i dont breed females myself that old, i usually retire them around 10 as they have had 6/7 years breeding by then.

Nige i dont know why you dont carry on breeding them, even if they have had 6 to 7 years breeding.
if you are double or triple cluching your females, then i would agree.
if they are just producing 1 clutch per year then their should be no problems with females to carry on in that style for many years.
In the wild they will start very young sometimes at a length of about 15inch and carry on breeding right through there lives.

I know its everyone to their own, but it just seems weird as to why you would retire a females that young.

As long as a snake is in exellent health with great muscle tone and is willing to breed then they should be aloud to.

cheers

Paul.
