Rhamphiophis rostratus...

Here's a few pics of my Rhamphiophis pair. Iv'e had them for about two years now and have not succeeded to breed them. Anyone that has any idea what would be the best way to stimulate breeding with this species?

Maybe they arent hot enough , road temps where they occur at the times they are active reach 75. celcius.

All I know is I love them.

It makes sense what Mfezi says. Maybe separate them and cool them a bit for a few months and then introduce and slowly make them hot and maybe some spraying/misting would get them in the mood.

Lovely animals you have there. Thanks for sharing!
