Josh,
I live in Corvallis and have maintained the species continuously since 1962.

I try to mimic what occurs in nature so remove all external heat source at or near the end of Oct. Locally, male boas begin showing up under surface objects during suitable weather conditions in Feb. So if I intend to make crosses with captive males, I will place them in a cage with a heat source around the end of Feb. or first part of March. I bring the females out 3 - 4 weeks later at about the end of March to first part of April which pretty much coinsides with what occurs locally in the wild.

Since you mention that the species occurs where you live, you might consider capturing your own rather than purchasing the species.

If you have other questions, I can be reached at charinabottae@earthlink.net
