Comments
This snake has never produced any sperm during the breeding season. This year I discovered that some males start producing sperm later in the season. I would not call this snake sterile. I think it is more of a cycling problem. Warm the snake up earlier than the females. Get him warm and feed heavily. I think he'll have a reasonable chance of producing sperm.
