Hey ya'll. Been a long while since I've been on, but hoping someone can help or at least advise.
My male snow corn, unbeknownst to me, was mating with my normal female during a program I was doing at a school science fair tonight. I went to grab the snow, not realizing they were connected and I think I injured one of his hemipenes, there was a fair amount of blood, but it stopped as soon as the hemipene was retracted and he seems fine now. I know the answer is always, when in doubt see a vet, but I guess I want to know, how serious is it/can it be. Does it sound like I may have seriously injured him or perhaps some blood may have come from her. Just never had this happen there was a tiny bit of blood when I accidentally separated them last year (I need to pay more attention in March and April when I box them together for programs).
Thanks for any help/advice.

Definitely need to pay closer attention, why do you even put them together for shows at all? it's just as easy to bag 'em and have em in the same container for transport but individual bags...
Unless you separated them pretty violently I would guess the blood would be more from the female and you should be more worried about her. Keep a close eye on both of them and seek a vet if there is anything at all out of the ordinary.

I know it can happen. I do pack mine separately, but I have put them in the same enclosure during the shows for a visible comparison of the morphs. But I always take all of the same sex to avoid unwanted breedings.
