If you are planning on breeding feeding records are important and dates of cooling and shedding as well as the family linage are all something which you would need.

Alot of planning does go into breeding if you are serious about it.

What are you planning on breeding ?

You only need an incubator for colubrids and pythons Dan, Boa constrictors are live bearers, so he might not need one

Get a copy of Vin Russos THE COMPLETE BOACONSTRICTOR,you will find all the info you would ever need for breeding.

For egg laying snakes incubators can be home built for around £30-40.

Phil composed an excellent piece on how he breeds his boas and how, for him, it is a year long cycle. Have a root through his posts and you should find it!

Hi mate you can usually pick it up on amazon, there's usually a few used copies for sale starting from about 45 quid or you can het it from Vin russo's website .[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for 75 us dollars shipping included which i think works out at about 45 quid for a new signed copy, it's well worth the money.

I picked up a signed copy from his website just before christmas and it was here in 3 days which i couldn't believe
