I guess it just depends on the snake, my female miliaris did show a lot of aggressive tendencies, whether this has anything to do with the fact that she gobbled up the male, I don't know. All I know is, if I decide to venture back into sand boa breeding, I will NOT keep them together for prolonged periods of time...
:I've kept my miliaris together for months at a time during the breeding season just to make sure he gets the job done. I separate for feeding, but now it looks like they are going to be separate more often!
:Strange too, as I just finished reading the Rodriquez-Robles et al paper about gape size in Erycine snakes which list published reports of feeding in E. miliaris (and other erycinae). They list 10 species of lizard, 3 species of bird, a bat, and nine rodents, but no snakes! Guess miliaris can be flexible!
