    Re: Clutch of another kind

    I keep coming back to look at these pictures because holy hognose! A 20 egg clutch?! I'm looking forward to being able to breed my group but they won't be ready for a minute since the females hatched in 2016. Is she eating a fuzzy or hopper once a week?

    Yep 20 which is a good number hopefully a few holdbacks in there.

    That girl eats either 2 small adult mice a week or one large adult a week, right now I m alternating with an occasional rat fuzzy to build her back up a little.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what hatches. Now I don't feel like giving this new adult anaconda a hopper is too big.

    It's a matter of size usually I start feeding hoppers when they are about 80 grams or so, this girl is usually in the 300 grams range (a bit less right now but building back up fast)

    Awesome clutch there! I can't imagine having 20 huffy noodles.

    I just received my female hognose yesterday. She's 51 grams and the breeder says she eats fuzzies. I can't imagine my bebe at 300 grams. I'm excited.

    Nice Deb! Amazing production from that female. I can't wait for my gravid garters to start dropping. We can't wait for those hatchlings. Lol.
    Stay in peace and not pieces.

    And another 15 for this female, I did not even re-introduced a male yet to double clutch her, I wanted to get her feeding a little longer before I did, obviously she had another idea in mind and laid eggs anyway.

    grats got to love that right
    Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.
