Well, they are not acting aggressive, and I probed both of them to make sure there was one male and one female. I have experience breeding insular (island) boas - and in my experience with those, the tail waving and cloaca gaping means the female is receptive. Is it the same in Dumerils?

How long should I leave them together? I fed both of them 3 days ago, so I don't think there should be any issues with one eating the other.

>>In my opinion, it's not too late. I have one female developing follicles right now for sure, probably more that I just haven't checked. Depending on your area, and weather patterns, you could easily breed them through spring. I don't like going too into Dumerils breeding because I do a lot of it by observation and work within the parameters they've set within my experience......which could easily be different for anybody else! With ZERO experience breeding Candoia I produced a healthy litter by working with what the animals presented. My daughter noticed follicles in July I think? According to the Candoia "expert" this was the wrong time of year and she would probably slug out if anything-Well, he was WRONG! So, take everything you read as a guideline and do what you're doing right now-Observe YOUR animals and work around what they're presenting to you. Good luck!
