Thanks for all of the info both here and via email.
I love those snakes!
One question....have you noticed a corrlation of time between when the female starts soaking (developing follicles?) and when she ovulates? Why I ask?
Well one of our Southerns did the same but soaked for over a week straight prior to ovulation today....something I am definitley going to watch in coming years. Makes ya wonder a little bit more. But it makes some sense at the same time.
Maybe the time of ovulation in the wild is triggered by a short time of more constant and consistantly cooler temps, perhaps for only a week. With our scrubs we have been including a 5-7 day period during their cooling period where the temps stay consistently cooler than usual. FOr instance if our standard level of cooling was 84-85 DTH and 70-72 NTL, we would implent a short period where the time allowed to warm to these DT temps were dramatically shorter so that the following evening the snake had a core body temp lower than normal. At the same time the NTL would be allowed to go as cold as 68 degrees. It hasn't seemed to hurt our breeding efforts so far since we have used it for the last few years.
Who knows...more to think about...that's all.
