I can add a couple observations:

A few years back I had a cal king double-clutch, and I'm quite certain she was not with a male after the first clutch. Most of the eggs were bad, but there was one that hatched.

Now, just this weekend I cleaned my snakes, and found a bunch of dried eggs in my with female pyro. She has NEVER been with a male, so I wasn't expecting any eggs, and didn't realize her shed two weeks ago was a pre-egg-laying shed.

Lastly, I have a female cal king( different from above) who also has never been with a male. After seeing those eggs from the pyro, I palpitated her (felt her up, Jerry!), and lo and behold, she has follicles.

So, there's one vote for sperm retention, and two votes for condition. Clear as mud, I hope!
