:I have a female that looks large enough to breed, she is a 2000 from Vivid Reptiles. She shed during the last month of brumation while it was still cold. Approximately 50-55 degrees. It was more like 60 when I warmed her up around March 1st.She looks opaque as can be, she has been this way for what seems like 3 weeks. Was I supposed to count the shed during the cooling as the one where I introduced the male? I put the male in a few times since they were warmed up even though she hasn't shed and at first the fled from each other. Now they tolerate each other but don't show any signs of breeding activity. I really hoped to have these guys breed for me this year. Any tricks I can try? Misting, cooling or warming? Anyone note that they breed moreso at night or during the day? Any comments are appreciated, thanks Tom


Hi Tom,
In my limited experience, I've found that sometimes you have to wait until the second shed before the female will become receptive.
Good luck!

Simon
