Hey,
They are not very temp sinative at all, To breed you will want to slowly lower the day light to 4-5 hrs each day, keep it at this for at lest a month, then place the 2 snake to geter, (the male with the female) It took mine about 3 weeks this time to fully breed, but they will usaly start not long after you put them to geter, do it at night, and make sure there is no lights, (i usaly check on them at about 3:00 to see what they are doing) but still keep them dark and mist them really heavly. After you have seen them breed for a long time (i have seen mine do it for 14 hrs before!)you can beagin to let the light come back on more, slowly raise the light level till its back at about 12 hrs, you can remove the male after about a month (i sead 2-3 weeks on my web site, this was a misprint and will be fixed) It will take about 7-8 months before the female will give birth, my first litter was 11 babies. (I have some info on care for the young on my care sheet) But i turn my heat lamps off in breeding season, but mostly becuse her cage is at the foot of my bed, (my bed is like a bunk bed, but with no bottom, thats were my gator lives) and it has gotin up to 90 deg one time up there! But it usaly stays about 80-85, with no heat lamp, so when i do have one going i make sure i have a thermostat on it. But good luck! If you need any help at all your more then welcome to e-mail me. (i like helping people with these snakes) philip171@ethixs.com
Well good luck
Philip

P.s
They are very easly snakes to breed, i bred them my first time back when i was 13.
