I'm a newbie at breeding - the last mating I saw there was no visible ovulation at all. However I now have a snake who is swelling up like a (rather alarming) balloon.

She was wild caught and it is just possible that she was gravid when caught, I'm only noticing it now, and she is about to give birth. On the other hand, this has come up very suddenly (noticed 2 weeks ago that she was looking a bit "thick", and now she's positively bloated). This is a species that is pregnant for about 9 months, so nothing usually happens this fast.

She has been housed with males for a while, and it has just dropped to winter temps here which is normally breeding season, but I have not seen any copulations, or attempts at same.

So here are some pics of my swollen Fiji Boa - do you think this is ovulation, pregnancy, or do I have some other problem?
