I was just wondering what I did wrong .. My carpets were cooled down and warmed up again .. they were then introduced ...

They mated constantly for a good month and a half and were seperated again after they seemed to be staying as far away from each other as they possibly can ..

I have never seen her ovulate and I am 95% shure she has no eggs.. Is there a possibility she could ovulate late? Or is this simply a game of chance .. sometimes it works or sometimes it doesn't????

I also have the same issues with my burms .. they were not cooled dow though (did not have the time although from what I read it is not nessecery for burms) .. simply introduced and they bred constantly for two month until she decided she had enough of him and I took him out of the enclosure.. again .. I never saw ovulation .. (Also how do u check for eggs on a burm .. I mean its not excacly obvious)

This realy sucks cause it seems like everything worked except the end product ..

thanx in advance for the advice

Just because a snake breeds doesn't mean it will produce eggs. In the past couple years I've only been able to get approx 2/3 of the females that breed to follow through and ovulate (with the Balls and Burmese anyways). Sometimes things work out and sometimes they don't.

Also, it is very easy to tell if a burm is gravid......there will be no mistaking it as they get huge!
