If the female has been kept on a steady diet since birth and looks stout (proportionally speaking), then you can still breed her. Remember: hognose snakes are sexually mature by age, not necessarily by size although females should be beefy. You may get the minimum amount of eggs out of her, which is four, but she's ready nonetheless and four is better than nothing. Just make sure she's stout/heavy--but not obese--and healthy.

Hognose snakes have been known to take sperm storage in the fall until the following spring (with cycling of course), so yes, you could try breeding her at the end of the summer/early fall, but if she takes, you won't get a batch of eggs until the spring of '04. Just keep that in mind.
