Females should not be bred until age four, the risk of death is higher otherwise.

You need to separate them. Keeping them together all the time is not a good idea. If you cannot house two adults properly how are you going to house 20-40 babies?

You may think you are serious about this, but clearly you have not done enough research.

I agree, you should do more research on breeding before attempting it breeding too early will almost for certain end up in the death of your female.How large is the tank/cage the you are housing them in?I have had my female boa since birth and my male only a few years now but i house them in the same cage and they just mated tonight!!! My cage is 10’x4’x8’ its huge more than enough room but not so much that it stresses them out.

It bothers me that 248 people have looked at this chat and only 2 has said anything.

I concur with Shadow Ace D. Keeping them together in a large tank still means that they are competing for the same best heat and cool spots for thermoregulation. They also share bacteria and parasites. Also you have no control over them breeding too young- the result is usually the death of both the female and the clutch.

More research if you are going to breed. If you breed two visual albinos together chances are great for eye problems and other birth defects. Make sure you know what you are doing before risking a clutch of 20-40 LIVE born snakes that each need their own heat/water/enclosures.
