I cooled six females, one may be too small. I did not cool the males. The males are in great shape, As opposed to last year.
Of the six, three have copulated so far. Hmmmmmmm I have three males in use. So round one.
I introduced the females to the males. I learned this a long time ago, if you put the males in the females cage, they wander and explore for a while. If you put the females in the males cage, they go right to it. In reality, its they will work it out anyway. But if you are in a hurry to SEE copulation, then females to males. The males courted like you described for a two days, they copulated for one day, then stopped. I left the females in the males cage for a couple more days then moved them back to their own cages. Will repeat once a week or so, Until they shed. My hogs developed large easily palpable ovum during the shed cycle. Most snakes do that prior to shedding. So hogs seem to be a bit odd.
Anyway, will report more when more occurs, hahahahahahaha To me, the next step is the key, nesting. But then, I tend to think that's important to reptiles.
