    breeding age??

    more or less until what age can a male and female bp breed and produce a healthy clutch? I know it depends on the snake but is there like an average age on when they stop? thanks!

    There are members that have females that have laid clutches while in their 20's

    Re: breeding age??

    oops yea sorry, Honestly I have never heard of a end date but then you would need to ask someone who has been breeding for 30 years consistantly. I dont think there are that many of them.

    At a guess I would say 20- 25 years being a little over the half life of the snake itself. Most critters (including us) stop half way in our life.

    Except for males.
