I honestly can not say 100% for sure that they are male and female. The "new" snake was the one I bought as female and the guy promised she had been properly sexed. Neither of them had been near rat blood and this was the first time any snake had been in this new tank.
Castro has never been sexed properly and i have just accepted he is a male as i could feel spurs.
They are fed apart and in a seperate feeding box.
They also shared a tank with no incidents for over a month up to me moving them into this new tank with a view to them mating and her staying there alone.
She is due a feed though. Maybe she was hungry after shedding and confussed the new tank with the feeding box.
Do i feed her and try again. They are similar size and age. (about 1.6 meters and 2 plus years old)
1.2 Red-tail boas (Castro + Cheeky + Sally)
1.1 Ball pythons (Pablo + Che')
0.1 Dumeril's boa (Alegra)
1.0 African Grey Parrot (Waxy)
1.3 Dogs (Marley, Jemma, Chelsea and Sasha)
