We(family affair)would appreciate any thoughts from some experts. I may give more info than needed or not enough so please bear with me.
We have 3 pair that were brumated for 7 weeks at temps in the high 40's to low 50's. The females are an anaconda het albino an albino and a 100% het snow that all range from 270-300g in that order. All have matching males at about 80g.
The albino couple and het snow couple have eaten 5 meals each in the 3 weeks since they were taken out but the anaconda female has not eaten at all and her male counterpart has only eaten once. No females have shed. We decided not to wait any longer and put them together anyway.
They all have access to 90 degrees down to mid 70's. We took each pair from the containers with substrate to clean containers with the same heating (90-70's) for two days and have seen tons of rubbin but no locks have been witnessed. The males seem way more interested than the females (sounds like humans). We are going to separate them to feed tonight, but then what? Try again? When and what parameters? Any thoughts are appreciated.
