Gender confused carpet pythons!! Ugh!

I apparently have the world's WORST luck with my carpets. First my female jungle, Glorhiril, that I bought in 2005 combated with my male the second year they were introduced together (2009). So I thought she was a he. Now I put him in with a Tiger coastal to stimulate them both to breed. What of all the luck happens? The male Tiger coastal starts following Glorhiril around the cage and then starts copulating with him/her/he-she!!

I don't know what's going on any more, I'm so confused

Made me think of the scene from Gladiator! Instead of queer giraffes I may have queer snakes.

Here is something I posted on another thread that might help you:

Be non-judgmental with your snake. Offer him/her feminine things such as lingerie and masculine things such as cigars and guns, to see which one he/she prefers. Soon your snake will choose his or her gender identification as per below:

Re: Gender confused carpet pythons!! Ugh!

Well it do happens... My friend had a stunning Chinese crested she saved, Frasse... She was friends with this breeder who had another male I dont remember the name on... Now Frasse and this male were the best of friends... Frasse won a lot of shows, and he got several titles so they were going to mate him with this price winning female as well.. She goes into a high heat, Frasse was playign with his friend and totally ignored a fully willing female to keep on playing with his best friend... as a matter of fact BOTH males ignored her... They removed Frasses friend and he still ignored the female, then they tried the other male for studd and they had to remove Frasse first then nature could take it's course... After that they decided that his drive was too low and there was probably a natural reason for it hence he shouldn't be breed so he never studded which was sad his temper and disposition was just as amazing as his looks very mild and nice doggy. But some animals just are quirky.. in the UK they had issues with gay sheeps that wouldn't mate either... so if it happens in the mammalian world it might happen in reptile too.. I do suspet that this might just been a switch up, god knows its hard to determind reptiles *lol*

A little link about gay sheep..

Re: Gender confused carpet pythons!! Ugh!

We need a poll to see how often this happens. Even with "expert" probing, snake owners often discover years later, that they were wrong.

That tiger was sold to me as a male and when I put "her" in with a male jag the male jag freaked, so we probed "her" and found out it was a he (confusing sentence there). No more dolls, GI Joes now!
