    Full of babies or full of ****?

    Hi! I havent been here in ages I miss you all!. So anyways here is some info.They brumated for about 2 months. I witnessed a lock late February. I've never bred either of them. (Just 1 female in photos). She last ate only 2 large nightcrawlers about a week ago. For those of you who remember me I've never ever been good at knowing if they are gravid or not unless they r those bloated beast ticks lol. Thoughts? Comments? Or even a hello would be appreciated.

    thanks for the welcome back. I did see a lock end of February. Yes with the male who is also an albino checkered. I'm leaning towards gravid but I've never been good at it since I'm not necessarily a breeder. And I figured it was a good opportunity to peek in and say hi

    Looks like you should know soon,keep observing for behavior change and contractions like she is trying to pass a large excrement. If not vertile the result will be what we refer to as jellies. Good luck Ashley!

    Welcome back!! I would say not gravid. That breeding was probably to long ago to be viable. I know females can retain sperm and I have actually had that happen myself. The thing is its usually triggered after a brumation. A February breeding is way to long ago for it to have taken. I would re-introduce the male after her next shed and see what happens. I hope I am wrong and she is gravid! Best of luck either way and beautiful looking snake.
