Different species have different copulation times. Montane kings, aprox 15 minutes, Cal kings, 3 or 4 hours, Crotes, 24 hours(up to) and my hogs, both kennerlyi and westerns, are what you mentioned. 4 or 5 hours. All times are aprox and average.
So far this year, my hogs are copulating right out of cooling and before feeding. Again, both westerns and kennerlyi. I mostly have kennerlyi.
Good to hear that is normal.
I mention the above times because, there is normally reason for long copulation times. In appears to be biological. Some species form Cloacal plugs after a successful copulation. Some species have induced ovulation, This is also a product of courting.(plus male pheromones). So I leave the pairs together for a few days. Most species I keep are not separated ever. I plan on attempting this with hogs but those cages are not ready yet. Got the glass yesterday, so its getting close. The first one is actually a prototype cage for some cages I am doing for the Chiricahua Desert Museum. Google up the images, you will see some of the cages I have already done there. And a hognose too, they are fairly common right on the grounds of the museum. In the parking lot, in the outside enclosures etc. And across the street, hahahahahahaha. Anyway, not sure about them getting tired, that never seems to be the case. Best of luck
