There are many unanswered questions surrounding house snakes, it is our aim over the years to definitively answer as many of these questions as we possibly can.
Q: Are Boaedon Capensis and Boaedon Lineatus compatible?
A: Yes, our account is detailed below.
Following our unsuccessful attempts to find a mate for our adult female lineatus we decided that, as she laid slugs every month or so without ever being with a male, we would use the opportunity to test the compatibility with capensis.
A total of 3 clutches were laid in 2011 (from only 1 mating), below are photos of all 10 hatchlings.
Now that this question has been answered, onto the next question....
Q: Are the offspring of Boaedon Capensis and Boaedon Lineatus fertile?
A: Yes, Hatchlings emerged on 31st August 2012 from a mating of a pair of hybrid (Boaedon Capensis x Boaedon Lineatus) House Snakes.
