I am breeding mine this year for the first time. I live in the Southeast US. I just looked up the average temps for their natural habitat and matched it up to the avg temps by me. Most snakes will breed in spring (their local spring). It's not just the temps, although that is important. Air pressure changes, humidity, etc all matter too, and they sense it. I'd start with whatever months by you most closely match the spring temps for them in Australia, and then adjust the temps in their enclosures to as close as you can get to what they get naturally. In other words, if their local spring is in October or Nov, and yours is in March or April, adjust their temps in March or April to what they'd see in Australia in Oct or Nov. Then the temps and air pressure changes, etc will all be cycled at the right time.

I may be off, but I plan on putting mine together next week. It may be a little late, actually. I've been away and didn't want to let them have at it without being able to keep tabs on them. In addition, my male just stopped eating and I suspect it's because he is ready. He recently shed so it's not that.

Good luck. I hope I'm right, otherwise I blew it for mine too. I did look up as much as I could beforehand, online, so I am "insecurely confident".

Jeff
