      Default Big Jim, possible Jane

      Well there may be a reason why big Jim not been interested with mrs boa as he might be a female, he:she has massive spurs when I picked the boa up in April and never even thought anything of checking for sex, and Iím sure she is a girl now

      I don't think so. I mean.... I've seen weirder things happen, though lol

      but it makes sense after he/she wouldn't go after your female and then this...... seems waaaay to coincidental to not be true. I don't think a male would go after another male so quickly and on top of that I don't think a male would be too receptive to another male trying to lock him.

      Keep us up to date! Hopefully a female fits with your plans!

      That's what I'll put my money on. I'd be quite surprised if she turns out to be a boy. I have read some articles about female boas going asexual and producing without a male present so they can absolutely do some weird stuff.

      My son has his first owner on Facebook and he has had 3 different litters with him so not sure what to say, another breeder who has produced some worlds firsts and who Iíve had quite a few snakes from has contacted me and said he has seen a few of his proven adult males lock together often after they have been with the female for a while and have there scent on them, I will put him back in with my proven female this weekend and hopefully he will have a bit more luck ,lol
      Hereís a picture of from one of his other proven locks from the first owner that he sent my son his marking are quite distinctive so Iím sure itís him

      I had an old rosy boa that did that ["parthenogenesis"], some years ago. She lived to about 26 years, after reproducing for FIVE years once she had a mate. I only gave her a mate
      after she insisted on producing slugs & a defective live baby that lived for 8 months: I didn't want her to repeat that, so I took a chance with breeding such an old but inspired snake
      and lo & behold, she produced very big healthy babies, 49 total in 5 years, by 2 different unrelated mates. I still have one of her off-spring. What a snake! She was given to me
      late in her life after she lived many un-bred years but stressed out* in a nature museum *she finally went on a long hunger strike, losing much weight & muscle tone** over 2 years,
      which is when they "dumped" her on me...they had 2 other females rosies she had been housed with in a 24"x24" cage- -and about a year after she came home with me, their
      rosies got horribly sick & died. She was fortunate to have acted up when she did & escape the fate of the other 2. (stupid museum people!)

      **the only reason I kept breeding her for 5 years is that when I tried to have her quit, she nearly died trying to expel the slugs she produced anyway...live babies are much
      much easier, since they come out on their own. And she seriously had very little muscle tone, due to her age & the state of starvation she was in when they gave up on her. But finally after 5 years she was ready to quit reproducing (whew!) & she lived some years after that before passing of old age. She was with me for 11 years after surviving the museum, and she never refused food with me. In fact, when I first got her home (starved after eating almost nothing for 2 years) she actually ate about 40 mice the first month...these were fuzzies or hoppers, of course. Proper heat, "TLC" & no stress...she was a whole new snake, but a few months later, wasted all that body weight on
      a pile of slugs & one live but deformed baby. That's why I took a chance to mate her the next year...

      Didn't mean to get off the topic here, but just that if you hang around enough snakes for enough years, you might get to see some really amazing things.
      And when I took in that old rosy boa, I sure didn't need (or really want) another snake, I had a houseful then. But if I'd said no, look at all that I'd have
      missed. You never know. And I felt so sorry for her & couldn't- wouldn't- say "no"...I'm a big "softie"! (shh!)

      I love stories like that,it fascinates me at the outstanding lengths some people go through to help animals
      If only more people was like that ,the world would be a better place
      Iíve read about females producing off spring after never being with a male
      Mother Nature at its best
      Iím hoping that mr Jim was just having an off day,I will try him again back in with my female in saying that little motley is already proving him self again
