::: Can anyone give me some advice.I have a gravid MB who by all accounts should have laid by now. She shed 3 weeks ago and everything I have looked at say between 10 to 14 days.I have supplied her with a sufficiant hide box and everything else is within the norm.Any thoughts would be welcome(except egg bound)
::: Thanks in advance
::You said "hide box", do you mean nesting box? You will want to have something with some moist substrate in it, which the snake should go into to lay her eggs. Mine is laying right now, and it has been 11 days since she shed. Are you 100% sure she is gravid? Tom
: 100% sure. She laid last year about nine days after she shed.Ment to say nesting box (same one as last year) lined with moist spagnum moss
Scratch everything i said she is in the middle of laying just now 6 eggs so far and it looks like at least another three or four to come.
Thanks for your help,
