    True that! That is one bright orange snake.

    Re: Solana - Our Scaleless Sunglow Motley Corn

    She did it again! She laid eggs. Ten to be exact. However, this time, unlike last year (4-24-23), she seems to have gotten them all out.

    She wasn't thrilled with me taking the eggs, but she wasn't terrible either. I removed her from the tank and aside from some tail rattling, she was fine.

    She seemed like she was looking for them when I put her back in the tank, but also drank and went into her hide after a bit.

    I am going to keep an eye on her the next few days and then feed her Sunday.

    It scares me that she did this again, but I am relieved it seemed to work out this time. To be clear, she has never been with a male. Figment, our Hypo Lavender Corn is in the same stack and room, but they have never even seen each other.

    Hey, welcome to the "club" of rat snake keepers whose snakes are wanna-be chickens. It's frustrating that there's no "off" switch, eh? All we can do is worry & watch to make sure they don't retain eggs, which in my case is nearly impossible with these large Florida (yellow x gulf hammock) rat snakes, because their eggs are soft & can't be felt in their large bodies. My 2 girls are 16 years old & still laying one or 2 clutches every summer...(never bred). I feel your pain! BTW, you should incubate the 3 white ones, you might get some partho-hatchlings. Did you candle them? (I know, I'm a bad influence...hahaha!)

    Solana- behave, you silly snek!

    I'm so glad she's delivered all her eggs this time, I had a grey rat snake for 17yrs as a teenager and like Bogertophis, she laid eggs every year either once or twice without fail,

    This is the main reason both my snakes have been males. That, and their smaller body size.

    I got rid of the eggs. I thought about it for a second, but I was more worried about my girl.

    Yeah, I will check her again tomorrow. I am letting her rest today. However, all indications point to all eggs are out. This is very frustrating and worrisome.

    Hopefully, this is only a once a year thing, if that!

    Solana seems to be doing fine.

    I plan to feed this weekend and assume she will eat. She's got to be a hungry snake.

    Yeah, but most snakes (having just laid eggs including slugs) need to rest & rehydrate first. Mine always do: after laying they'll spend a few days soaking in their large water bowls, & I wait to see evidence of actual hunger (such as following my hand movements) before I feed them. So in case you don't see that, just wait until you do.

    Solana had her post egg laying shed yesterday. Now she's looking hungry. Food tonight.

    She seems fine. I would assume she ate, unless I say otherwise.
