Pretty hard to say from the photos...

I have looked at the pictures a few times and since I really wasn't sure I didn't want to say anything. Since she is laying on top of her mate in the pictures it is particularly difficult to see what is going on... it creates an artificial bulge. Just a guess here but I'm going with "not pregnant". I look for a couple things once I get into Feb/March to figure out if I have a gravid female or not but the more noticable stuff for me it overall thickening while the female consistantly refuses food. I have had females that will eat for some of that period but most often times they are off feed into that third month after my best guess of an ovulation. I'm probably going to make a trip tommorrow to check on the boas and I have one female that is due towards the end of the month... she's about a six footer and it is somewhat obvious that she has a litter on the way... so I'll take a picture. I do have another female that is a lot larger(in the 8 foot range) that I know ovulated, she went off food but doesn't show as much thickening as she usually does, probably due to the fact she had a litter last year and I expect a small showing... I'll see if she wants to play "take a picture" but I doubt that is going to happen. Here is an older shot of the above mentioned female during pregnancy.
