It could of been ovulation that you seen, as far as her size increase. How long was the male in with her?

The first time he was in there for maybe ten minutes, she spazzed out and I went in with a hook and towels to pull him out. That was the first time (& only) she ever showed any aggression at all.

The second time in for about three weeks/month out for three days for attempted feeding, back in for another month, interest stopped and he was bullied over to the coldest corner while she bellied up on the heat so I pulled him for good.

I'm pretty sure I missed it when I pulled him out because she was flipping out on him. I don't care how wussed it makes me, I'm not having any of my snakes bit, tossed and bashed about.

I'm going to do the cages next to each other and tossing the males shed in with her thing again this year. Hopefully that way she won't bash/toss the male around the cage. I'm actually going to do it with the other girls as well since this year will be their first.

Have you ever tried putting the female in the males cage? I had a female last year that would do that and I put her in the males cage and presto, I had a litter of 24. Have you ever read Jeff Ronne's book? It has a lot of interested facts about getting boas to breed.

I'll deff try that this year.

I've read Ronne and others, multiple times. Unfortunately, I don't think Cara is literate.

Thanks for the tips, I appreciate it

Cara? What do you mean by that?

Lol, Cara is the big hypo girl. It was just a joke about her not going by the book like a good snake.

You could cool her down real good so she is in a lethargic
She might snuggle up a little then
