How long does a snake’s pregnancy last?
Reintroduce your snakes for a few days in succession until the female looks like she has lost interest in the male. She will be producing eggs at this point. After this, all you have to do is wait for her to lay eggs or birth live babies. The gestation period is generally 28 to 45 days.
How many times can a snake get pregnant?
