: My alterna were in brumation from thanksgiving until valentines day at about 56 degrees. They lost no weight and came thru great.
: They are both eating well and each shed a couple days ago. I put them together the other day and they paid very little interest in each other. They are still together now and seem to be old time tank buddies even though they arn't.
: They lay together and stuff but so far have seen no breeding activity.
: Should I just leave them be or shold I remove the male and try again in a couple weeks? Or what?

:snakes are like 4 years old I beleive and are a proven pair.


Jeff,
I would definitely seperate the pair for a few days and then reintroduce them. Continue doing this at least until the female has undergone her second shed. If at all possible, get a backup male. You don't necessarily have to use both males on the female - even dropping the shed skin of a rival male in with the inactive pair could help.

Good luck-
Andrew
