You hear that Bell? That's why you weren't successful...because Sargent T doesn't approve.

Without further elaboration on how you came to that conclusion...the only thing that will be taken in jest, is "your post."

You do understand that cooling periods are implemented to stimulate the natural breeding responses of these animals, right? To encouraging captive snakes to breed, its helpful (more like necessary) to mimic the climate of their place of origin. Sure, some will have successful results without any cooling period...however those are the exception...not the rule. Mother nature makes the rules, we just abide by them.

Tell us your secret...how did you train your snakes to ignore this process which guides their instinctual response?
