Thanks for the confirmation on the twitching behavior by cornsnakes, it's what I expected, but wanted to cover all bases of course.
Serpwidgets, if only the WOULD read that book it would make things a LOT easier!! Actually I added that comment in because I wanted the reader of my post to know that I've been doing my research and have been trying all angles.
This morning I put the snow male in with one of the amels, the one I first thought was a female, and lo and behold they went right to it. It was the first breeding I got to watch. He wasn't in the tank with her for more than a minute and business was started. I was very excited! Now it makes me wonder if the normal male I had been trying to breed with her is actually a male. I will put the snow in with him/her? on Saturday and see what happens.
Another question . . . According to the Love book, she suggests one male for 4-6 females. Would this indicate that 4-6 breedings are a 'max' for your average corn male? I've bred this particular snow to one female twice, and now the currrent amel. How many more times could/should I breed this willing male before quality drops and I get less fertilization? Or will he decide that on his own by not breeding? Once again I know there's no hard and fast rules here, but am looking for others' practical experiences since I'm just starting out getting my own!
Thanks in advance for any help.
