I've read many times that sometimes males change their character when they are looking for a mate.

Quick question - does this happen when there is a female in close proximity to the male or will this happen to all males.

In other words, if I owned one snake and it was a male, will the same thing happen or does there need to be a female present to get the males going?

Like I said, just curious.

The only thing i`ve ever noticed is that they fast, but even thats not a certainty. I have an 8 year old Pastel who ate like a pig all winter going from 1200g -1900g.

Royals owned "lots"

I'm loving the title of this thread. Best thread title of the year contender for sure Lol

Back on topic.

Males will "cruse" when it's breeding season. They typically roam all over their cage and display very little interest in food.

I couldn't say for sure whether they display this behaviour, despite the lack of a female presence. The only time I had a single male was when I first started keeping royals and I wasn't aware of the subtle changes in behaviour. From then on I've always had females around

I was wondering if many had much experience of having just one male, because it's a recurring theme that one snake is only one snake for a very short time. I appreciate the replies though and I'm glad you like the title.
