Congratulations on the baby greens. My female that is a little smaller than yours produced 33 babies last year along with 9 egg masses and one still born. It was a crazy morning as I found her finishing up around 4:30 AM. I would love to see photos of your adults and your set-up.
Managing the babies has been a great experience. I'd have to check my records, but I don't think they started eating for about two months. The last one to eat voluntarily waited nearly 7 months. Once they start they seem to eat every time I offer them food. Their feeding and growth patterns are much different than the retics and burms that I have raised in the past.
My adults female's metabolism seems much slower than the large pythons. How old is your female and how long have you had her?
