:Let me know what you think. Brooksi pair, 4 ft,twitching tails and eating like pigs. I have been putting them together for about 2 weeks every other day and they're showing more and more interest until today they are going nuts. Both seemed to be flagging and doing things snakes do before they breed like crawling on each other and stuttering alongside each other. Now they're constricting each other, but not biting and every other minute they zoom into a new position and it looks like chaos in there! They're definitely not fighting but what i am curious is what i should do? I mean it's friday night and I can leave them in together for another 6 hours easily before I go to bed, but if they continue this chaotic behavior should I attempt to stay awake half the night and hope the male tires her out and has his way with her? Or don't sweat it and remove the male late tonight even if they're still acting like this and just try again tomorrow? This is the closest they've come to locking up so I am pretty wound up hoping they complete the mission. I won't leave them together overnight, but I will stay up all night if it is best to leave them together. Any advice? Tom

Twitching tales & jerking are good signs. Constricting - not good. Two 4 ft kings are better than 1 fat 4 footer. Going crazy or zooming along each other either means they aren't ready to mate, or that they are the same sex.
(voracious appetite could mean 2 females)

If there's no question that they are opposite sex, separate them & try re-introducing them to each other in another week or two.
(sorry for the blank post)
