 Breeding/ sort of questions

1. in snake sex do the males go "on top"?
if so, then i have 2 males, 2 females, and 4 unknown genders.

2. are males territorial or do they care if another one shares its cage (this question doesn’t include feeding behaviors)?

Well yes snakes do go on top of the female to subdue her for breeding if that is what you mean.
And you may want to separate them, but sometimes water and garter snakes seem to be ok in breeding colonies.

i’m not keeping garters and water snakes in the same cage. you might’ve got mixed up because i said the word gender in the original post.

one of the pairs of water snakes have been breeding for 2 weeks. i’m not joking or anything, i’ve even had to feed them while they were mating lol. is it time to seperate them?

I didn’t suppose you had them together or anything, just using them as an example since they are related and have many care similarities. And just let them come apart on their own.
Good Luck with them.

how long are pairs supposed to mate for? lol
also, my florida water (which is really a banded, i just like to call him a florida water snake) ate 2 pinkies and 1 adult mouse with only 2 minnows used to scent them.
