View Full Version : western hog nose clutch size....(& other questions)

02-21-2006, 07:43 PM
hello! I haven't posted on here before but I figured I would get some correct info here....

I was wondering, on average, how many eggs a large female western hognose will have in a cluch? It will be her first one but she is HUGE, just wanted some info as to what to expect.

Also, for those who have bred them, is it true that they will lock up (or not lock up if she's not interested) in about 30 minutes??? I hope so, we are excited to see that almost right away!

Another question is, must we put the female in the males enclosure or is it just as sucessful to put the male into the females enclosure?

Thanks for any advice... I'm good at breeding ball pythons but I just couldn't resist trying hoggy's! :)

They have between 5-30 eggs.
How quickly they lock up all depends on the snakes, usually it is within 1-2 hours of introduction.
Many put the females into the males cage. I do not know if it really matters.
