    No oysters required . Just don’t let them get married , that’s when they stop the mating process ...

    @Neil j
    If they do end up being late breeders mid-late September, would it be fine leaving them in over the next months together? Or is it beneficial to seperate and reintroduce, had them together for a week now and no lock ups

    Wasn’t sure if something might go wrong if I left them together for a extended period ( last post I was only planning to leave them together for a week or 2, but now it would be over a month if I leave them till end of September

    Thanks :)

    Are you sure there a pair? Did you get sperm plugs last time male shed? Introducing them will give you more chance of seeing of a lock 4 days out - 1 week in. Although I can never wait that long I’ve always left them together or rotate to another female. Other thing you could try is putting a shed skin from another male. But they are spring breeders so they should breed next month if left together too. Not much can go wrong.

    Blind leading blind though
    I’ve had my carpet together since early winter. I don’t see much mating all that time but they have all had locks. I think they are down to business now.

    One lock found today, really hoping these striped jungles are het axanthic.

    Sold as a pair from a reputable breeder in Sydney, that’s all I can say really, I did notice on males last shed, the Spurs were quite large, could have been sperm plugs but didn’t think about that before chucking the shed

    I’m in north QLD just above Mackay. My only instructions from the seller when I bought my pair hypo bredli was to leave them together till December. That was my first year breeding. I did roughies to.
    I think you’ll be fine mate.

    Awesome, guess I’ll lleave them together and maybe use an old snake shed from my coastal male(?)

    What about feeding? I was told not to feed them untill after they successfully lockup

    And alsooooo lots of questions I’m sorry, I need to move the female to another enclosure (swap her with the coastal currently living in it) without a beam in middle of enclosure , so I can fit my nest box (styrofoam box with sphagnum moss) in, should I move her and male bredli to new enclosure now or after they lock up? Maybe this would stimulate the male v male, when bredli gets the scent of coastal?

    Obviously I would clean it out properly before switching them around to prevent anything possibly transmitting a disease

    Or just skip the nest box completely, I’ve been told 8/10 times nest boxes never get used by the females

    I don't bother with nest boxes. I did the first time and they didn't use them.

    Update on the sunglow boy i was putting over the albino girl. Turns out she's not a girl, either that or she likes it rough.
