I'd leave em together. I've seen other species do it so why not BPs. Take plenty of pics with the babies coming out of the coils. I would've left my moms with their eggs but I didn't.

Dave I don't blame you for being skeptical for the simple reason he's being awefully short with the conversation about set-up etc. But whatever. Anyway I'm outta here. It's Miller time.

:I believe he pulls the mother out just before hatching out of concern for the babies possibly getting smashed. However, I'm thinking of leaving mine together and risking it just to see what happens. I know I haven't reproduced the wild perfectly so perhaps her concerns over my looking at the babies might cause some danger that wouldn't be there in the wild but I figure I'll try anything once. So, I hope to have pictures of a mother hatching eggs in mid June if all goes well and I donít do something wrong to prevent her from successfully incubating them. I think my ISP is about to change names so the URL in my post above might not work by then but it will be somewhere on snakemorphs.com

::I'll believe it when you post pictures of the adult female wrapped around eggs that are hatching.
