    Default What are these Carpet Pythons up to?

    tails.jpg

    Ok, we all know what they are up to. Anyone ever bred Carpet Pythons? The male stopped eating for most of the summer so I decided to try throwing him in with the female to see what would happen. It appears to be going well. My question is this: What is the best website for Carpet Python specific breeding info? Also, can someone answer these basic questions:
    I've only bred Corns before, are there any major differences between hatching colubrids and JCPs other than incubation temp and the fact that getting the eggs away form mama will could potential cause me to bleed?
    If they are linking up now, how long will it be (assuming nature is working) before I should setting up a laying box?

    The male is not much to look at but the female is actually a very pretty specimen.

    Carpets breeding season is in the winter/spring so you are in the exact opposite of the "season" right now.
    Pythons incubate at around 87-90F well & take around 2 months, just over or under depending on the temps, higher temps faster incubation but also higher risk as well.
    I have never been bit by ANY snake removing their eggs, Mommas are usually too tired to put up much of a real fight.
    For a laybox sooner is better than later it lets the female get used to it & using it as a hide.
    Chances are she will not "go" as stated they breed in the winter/early spring, not late summer early fall.
    Doesn't mean she won't go, but if she does she may slug out as the male has not been cooled & may not have viable sperm, Mark
    P.S. yes I have bred Carpet Pythons before

    Cool, thanks for the reply. I'll cross my fingers that it will work, but if not I'll be prepared to match them up again come february or so.

    It will probably take a few copulations (plug-ins) for to be sure if u havnt noticed obvious ovulation signs. And i would keep them together till u are sure. Females really really like to bask when they are gravid, just as a heads up.

    best of luck to you, there are lots of carpet keepers here.
    So just a question is that 2nd picture a Coastal jungle or Diamond jungle?

    She's an '05 Jungle and is the one I'm hoping will may give some eggs.
    Purchased her as a hatchling from J&J reptiles.

    The colour is off a bit in this picture, her yellows are a bit darker than that.

    I have no idea how many eggs she'll drop. I'd be thrilled just to get 5, anything beyond that would be bonus.
