Good to have a second opinion, since this is my first breeding of taiwans.. But no, she's not in shed yet.. But you're right.. should be soon..
:Yep, that is as much as will see with Taiwans. Because they are long slender snakes it is quite hard to see when they are gravid. I have had a clutch on surprice... I guess you will have eggs very soon. Eyes look cloudy so you should have a pre lay shed soon. Great stuff.
::Definate swelling going on, that sort of oddly tapers down a few inches above the vent.. probably ovulation actually.. what do you guys think? They've stopped breeding, or at least as obviously and frequently as they were before..
