 Breeding question on red tails

does it have to be a certain time of the year for breeding or can you just adjust the temps of the tank for them to start breeding and what size do your red tails have to be

 Breeding question on red tails

Well most breeders tend to start cycling their animals in the fall/winter months, here we start things in october for others, and the boas seem to do fine starting in december. With the winter and fall temps here they cool the basement itself, so it helps us out, and we donít adjust any of the boas temps..they will pretty much even cool themselves by going to the cool ends here when they wish to, it works for us, we get babies every year, so there is something going right with them.

Males of course can be breedable at a good 18 months of age, size wise which I have seen males a good 3-4 ft breeding, but males typically always are able to breed at smaller and younger ages, they donít do all the hard work.

Females typically age wise seem to be best at breeding 3 yrs and up..if under 3, then it should at least be closer to that size, a good female 5 ft and up should be breedable if she has the right body weight to do so..
