Snakes usually 2 to 3 at the age of sexual maturity, the annual rut season in the spring. Partially awakened dormant more than a year after the first molt when they start mating. As the male's sperm in the female snake snake body can survive for several years, so mating the female snake's life up to 3 to 4 times. In the mating season, plenty of food to feeding. Near the spawning period, eggs have been pregnant female snakes and male snakes to be kept separate, to keep quiet to avoid disturbed areas. Snake in the spawning period of about 7-8 months, during this period, a finding that snake eggs, should be promptly collected, for artificial incubation, do not put sun exposure, so as not to affect the hatching rate. Can also be pregnant with eggs inside the female snake snake off to lay eggs. Snake eggs can be collected by artificial incubation. In order to improve snake eggs hatching, commonly used artificial incubation. So how does artificial hatching snake eggs? Primary use fresh snake eggs, snake eggs to full and flexible in order not to dry, no damage to the person better. If using crock or wooden boxes, baskets for the Incubator, within about 30 cm thick mat of fine sand, sandy soil around cylinder (or barrel) half the size, sand and soil ratio of 3:1. The thermometer placed horizontally in the cylinder (barrel), the control cylinder (barrel) in the incubation temperature, generally between 17 ~ 27 ℃. Humidity is generally 90% to 95%. If there is no hygrometer, can follow the "Hand sand into the group, after the release of sand that is spread out" principle. This moisture is more appropriate. Then the snake on the cross-hatching egg cylinder (barrel), notice the snake eggs must not upright.
In order to maintain a fresh moist snake eggs, snake eggs covered in moss or leaves of some, parasol trees and other objects. Snake eggs in order to maintain appropriate growth temperature and humidity in the incubation process to be measured and checked regularly, replace with fresh mulch. When the cylinder (barrel) the temperature is below 17 ℃, the available old clothes, sacks or wooden covers and other objects will Gangkou (or bung) covered with insulation. Temperature is higher than 25 ℃, it can sprinkle some water to the incubation tank, but be careful not to use water to clean the snake eggs, and egg flip to the next day will be 1. In the incubation process, the snake eggs should always be checked. Check the snake eggs: can be dug in a wooden snake 1 egg slightly smaller than some of the holes, put the eggs on the hole, facing the light or the sun observation, if you find the eggs did not change, it is not a snake eggs should be picked. The case of a normal egg embryos were visible vascular network. If the snake is not egg surface showing the vascular network, but the spots, spots 1 week after the non-proliferation and a half months after the egg shell hardens, then there moldy outer shell eggs, such eggs are mid-term embryo death, should be seized out; if no vascular egg embryo, within 1 week moldy, shriveled, then the snake eggs are not fertilized, it should be promptly eliminated. Because different types of snakes, snake eggs hatching the length of time is different, the short incubation time is 25 days or as long as 55 days or so. Snake eggs after 45 to 47 days, the cobra eggs after 55 to 57 days to hatch a baby snake. Should be taken out for the young snakes hatch on the bottom of the sand-filled mud tank feeding, food and drinking water to grow, peeling.
