    Default In need of a shed...

    At the moment I have a male hogg island boa that isnt "in the mood" per say. So basically I am wondering if someone could mail me a shed from one of their male hogg islands ASAP in order to help induce breeding activity in mine. A nice whole fresh shed could simple be placed in a ziploc bag and in an envelope and sent. I am willing to pay the few bucks for shipping lol. Please let me know if anyone can do this. Thanks

    I'll keep an eye on my Hogs for a shed and let you know. Sorry, but nobody is in "the blue" as of now.

    Thanks!
    Kristy- I know of a few people who will use this trick with some "non-motivated" males. In a way it simulates natural combative male behavior and will put them in the mood to snatch up those females.
    Nate- If you could get one once one sheds that would be wonderful man! My male is currently blue now but has been for over a week. Is this strange? I am hoping after his shed he will come out in full force with a lot of courting, etc. I sepereated him from the female until he sheds. Should I just leave them together still? Thanks!

    Wii do!

    If my male isnt' doing anything I roll him onto the next female. I continually separate and re-introduce for feeding, sheds, cleaning, etc. I use males to get other males into breeding as well. However, I do pay close attention to aggression to be safe.
