Just make sure you do your research. Pythons breed in the cool season, so all you should really have to do is slowly start bringing down the day time temp till it is down to about 82-84 degrees for a day time high. Also if you are using a light, make sure you give them less light then normal. Like 6 hours instead of 8-10. Watch for the female to shed, (post copulation shed) once she sheds this means that she will soon be read to breed with your male. This will be 2-7 days after her shed. Once the male has bred with her 2-3 times you just wait for the next shed, (post lay shed) This shed will happen 30-45 days after the copulation. Once she sheds this means she will be laying her clutch within 7-14 days. Now as soon as you see that she has laied, you need to put the eggs in a incubator at 85-88 degrees and 85-95% humidity. They will cook for about45-55 days and then you will see the tops of the eggs dimple in, this means the neonates will be hatching within2-10 days.

Good luck!
