Kat Sorry I don't have any advise/experience with artificial insemination but it's a really good question..
I can advise you to ignore bazmonkey and DogStar. They have no interest except to disrupt this forum.
:Has anyone tried artificial insemination with snakes or reptiles at all? If it's possible and practical, it strikes me as an easier/safer method of producing hybrids than playing mind games with the snakes involved...especially when making kingsnake X whatever hybrids and the like. I guess the biggest issue would be getting the sperm from the male snake, but perhaps allowing mating to take place in some sort of substrate-less plastic tub and then collecting any sperm that's left behind in the tub might work... then using that with another female... Thoughts?
