I've owned this animal since late last year, enclosure size is 4'x2'x1' (Animal Plastics T8) Newspaper + shredded newspapers. Using large generic heat tape type heater. It's 24" x 11". Temps are 89F Hot side, 81F Ambient, the snake itself is 87F (EXTERNAL). Digital Thermo + IR temp gun. The humidity sits at 69%, Acurite thermo/hygro. Last meal was shortly after Post Ov at the beginning of January, 2014. The snake's activity levels have been higher lately and she was due on the 5th. Last month, I covered her sliding cage doors with newspaper only leaving a tiny crack, so she could have even more privacy. For the last week and a half, she's been pushing the glass doors where the crack is, trying to escape from her enclosure. Would you consider that to be birthing behavior? She's a few weeks late now and I've been checking one time each morning for babies and leaving her alone for the rest of the day. I found her waxy stool a few weeks ago but she's yet to give birth. What kind of behaviors can be considered birthing or pre birthing behaviors? I definitely don't think she's slugging out because she'd gotten very large during pregnancy. Too large to full of slugs, imo. She seems in perfect health and I am not concerning myself with how late she is as I believe she knows what she's doing and that she is staying healthy but I'd like to know if anyone else with knowledge on breeding has seen any behaviors that can be taken as indication of the snake getting ready to have birth?
