    Quick breeding question.

    If I were to breed two snakes should they be housed separately before I put them together after brumation? Would them being together before that cause them to become used to each other and not want to mate?

    I asked a similar question a week or so ago. I think the consensus was that it wouldn't have any affect on breeding.
    It's just my opinion but I think keeping them separate until breeding after brumation.

    I read sometime ago that it is advisable to introduce the male to the female's enclosure.
