 Bateater questions,

I’m just curious on how people do it, male burm female retic? other way around? can the retic be a dwarf or does that change everything? and do you even get bateaters first try? sorry for all the questions just curious, I’m not going to try it, it must be difficult if they are very expensive.thank you ! :)

 Bateater questions,

I haven’t bred them together yet, but I plan to start trying next yet when my female retic is of size. It’s extremely hard from what I know. You have to really set the mood for them, as far as temps and humidity being almost perfect. The first batch of eggs that is produced are usually all dead, or empty, (not sure which), but either way doesn’t usually produce any bat-eaters. From what I understand, after that you can successfully breed bat-eaters, or you may continue to try fruitlessly. I haven’t found a breeder yet that will reveal any advice about it. The worst that can usually happen though is that your snakes get a little stressed for a bit and you don’t get any bat-eaters.

 Bateater questions,

Ah alrighty thanks, I was wondering because I was talking to someone at a family owned pet store nice place, and he was trying to get me to buy a baby male burm and wait til he gets to size and try and breed him to my female dwarf retic, I didn’t get a burm but it was just making me wonder if it was even possible to breed to a jampea dwarf. but thank you for clearing that up

 Bateater questions,

If I’m not wrong, I think someone actually asked on the retic forum once if it was possible to breed a burm to a dwarf retic and got an answer. You’d have to skim down in the posts though and look for it, it could have been a year ago.
