    Anyone who has been consistently successful breeding their Boas for a few years, can certainly have an opinion when it is possible to start breeding a Boa. However, only a person that has been breeding Boas consistently for a minimum of 6 or 7 years can have any opinion regarding the best age to begin breeding their Boas, based upon experience. That being said, based upon my experience doing this longer than 6 or 7 years, any male can potentially breed a female when 15-18 months old. 36" is big enough. I typically will grow my own most important or more cutting edge males up to 38"-42" by the time they are 18 months old.

    While it is possible to breed a 2 1/2 year old female, and see her produce a great litter at that young age, the long term impact on that female has unquestionably occurred. Whether she is 5' long or 8' long, I have done both, my experience is those females will have some sort of issue and will likely not see their 6th birthday. My own most important or cutting edge females, now at 2 years of age, are nearing 48" and will not be put through any breeding trial until they are at least 3 1/2 years of age and less than 6' long. I would actually prefer to wait till they are 4 1/2 years old and 6' long which is what I do about 80% of the time. That is my opinion based upon my experience having made changes hopefully for the better year after year. ;-)

    I just calculated an average age of the females I currently have gravid. That average is 6.3 years of age. Only one is a 3 1/2 year old.
