My guess is that you are working with Central American or northwestern South American boas, B.c. imperator, and not the true redtails from the Amazon basin region, B.c.c. The true red-tails are considerably more difficult to breed successfully than the northern subspecies and require more careful environmental manipulation. While you may feel that you have not done anything, the seasonal background cooling that U.S. homes experience in the winter, and your heat lamp being out for a few days, would have been more than sufficient to que breeding activity. Males are not difficult to induce to copulate, but it is the timing with the female’s ovulation that is the requirement for successful reproduction. This typically requires a slight cooling period of weeks and not days to induce ovulation. Do you have any photos of these boas?
