what kind of boas are you trying to breed? if you have an expert from a local pet sore give you some lesson on how to prob/pop then that would be great. there are probing kits out there but i would get lesson first before trying yourself, I have seen some messed up snake that there owner tryed to pop or prob and push to far up and dameged/killed there snakes.

 Copulation and sexing

Babies can be sexed by palpating the tail. Hold the tail so that you can run your thumb down the underside with a little pressure. If you feel a bump (it will feel like a little BB), it’s a male if you don’t it’s likely to be a female but check again later (I check numerous times). If after a few times you don’t feel a bump that you can be sure that you have a female. The first time you feel the bump in a male’s tail you won’t forget it, sexing babies is quite easy this way.

I like to wait until they’ve have their first shed before I sex them.

Jon,

I Don’t know anything about Viagra for snakes. Won’t think they’d need it.
