We have a confirmed breeder female ball python. She was entered into a “breeding program” at the pet store we bought her from. The way they explained it to us -to give us an idea of what we could do in case we decided to breed her with our adult male: once her eggs were laid, they’d take the eggs and place them in an incubation rack system. She never got a chance to coil around them. If we decide to breed her with our male, will she instinctively coil (i don’t recall the term, i think it’s burmate) (??) around her clutch, warming and taking care of her egg pile even if she’s never been able to do so before?
We don’t have an incubation rack set-up right now; i was just curious if we should be working on setting up an incubation rack system. We would prefer to allow her to be a mom, you know… She’s more than a “breeder” to us.
