Snakes gonna do what snakes gonna do,put a man and a woman in a confined space for an extended period and someones getting pregnant

Attempting a seasonal change by forced cooling of adult animals is where
those that cool miss it.
Boa in the wild do not grow to adult stages then suddenly encounter
a cool down,they live their entire life with the seasonal changes within their regions.
Forced cooling is forced breeding and its done for monetary gain,true animal welfare is the last on many folks agenda.( I M O )

I believe there is more to ambient light manipulation then most that cool
give credit,which is generally done during cooling.
Doing half of a half ass job

So ya ll keep cooling all those fine animals you have stuffed in them fish tanks in the back of those Apartment dwelling closets.

Five years from now you will still be paying rent . . . .

They have a rainy season, I don't know if I'd call it much cooler though. Well Panama wasn't anyway. LOL Can't speak first hand about the rest of the countries down there.

I think what Tom was trying to say is, (I'm rusty on my Texan to American translations, so bare with me ) that light cycle is not given enough credit. It may play a larger role then all the other manipulations man tries to accomplish breeding.

Your link is not working either. 404 page not found.

I guess what I was trying to say is, it may be a bit cooler in the rainy season, but it sure didn't feel like it.

i would agree with that some what i just believe that i get better breeding responces when i drop temps 5 to 10 degrees my females have had bigger litters like this and produced less slugs i would assume that there is some coralation

Like I said before, I don't do it, but I know people who won't have success unless they do. Probably a geography thing. Me and Tom both live in relatively similar environments, so not cooling works for us.
