Some good news, but first...

Hopefully this translates. In the past, her feeding schedule was one large, P/K mouse a week. Her temps were different then; moved from a plywood cage/light bulb heat to an PVCX cage with belly heat. I am not sure if this made any difference, but I will be testing it next season. He feeding schedule this year was one large, F/T mouse every two weeks. She is not as "robust" as last year. Even with the heavier feeding schedule then, you could tell that she had ovulated. She went from healthy-firm to "plump" in her lower mid section and slightly decreasing towards the tail. This year she has maintained the same girth and there have been no obvious signs(although I could have missed it). As I said before, the male has shown alot of interest in her, but I never saw her swell up like she did last season. I truly believe that reptiles are as easy as Frank Retes states...heat'um and feed'um...they will do the rest.

Now for the good(cross fingers) news...

Not to jinx anything, but I just palpated the female as I was cleaning cages and she is either gravid or full of slugs. Hopefully the first, but either way, I am one step closer than where I was last year. If anything comes of it, I will be posting an update here.
