    Thai Bamboo ratsnakes / O. p. coxi babies this year!

    I didn't breed my coxi last year, so I'm very excited to see a tub full of little red rockets again! Serenity (totally misnamed, by the way) gave us 7 eggs on May 14th.

    Here are Serenity and the sire, Atari. Atari on top, Serenity on the bottom.



    Eggs with mom.



    Eggs in the incubator.

    18 species of snake. 2.2 Gargoyle geckos 1.2 Crested geckos 0.7 Mourning geckos 1.3 Box turtles 1.0 Russian tort 2.2 evil cats 0.3 dorky dogs. Elemental Exotics

    Was hoping for some 4th of July baby snakes to hatch, have two clutches close and two gravid Rosy boas. Doesn't look like it will happen but Serenity is laying her second clutch of the season right now! Almost as good as pips!
    Looks like at least 4 fertile on the ground and at least one more egg on the way.

    Final total is 6 fertile, no slugs. So 12ish eggs from both clutches.
    The first clutch has one weird egg that I'm 99.9% positive is a dud. It had the very beginning of a "cheerio" when candled but it's never grown but it hasn't molded or otherwise obviously failed. Did spring a leak yesterday. I'll wait until it either does or the rest of them hatch to dispose of it though.
    But in candling that one every few days for the first few weeks, I noticed one of the other eggs in the clutch seemed to have two cheerios. They've now grown so much that I can't see detail inside anymore and unfortunately, I've lost track of which egg that was. But this pair has previously produced one set of fraternal twins back in 2014, I didn't notice anything different about that egg but the possibility of another set of twins has me excited for that clutch to hatch!

    The twins were a female, 5 grams, and a tiny little male at 3 grams. Most of them hatch between 8 to 14 grams.

    Here is the 2014 twin clutch. They were the second of the season and my second O. p. coxi clutch ever, so was super exciting! The twin egg pipped first but only had one snout out to start with.





    Came back a few hours later to this sight and couldn't believe my eyes at first, LOL.













    This is one of the twins out, not totally sure which one. Might be the female.







    This picture is definitely the male. His head looked ever so slightly underdeveloped until he ate and shed a few times. He took awhile to get eating if I remember right. I don't remember who bought the female anymore but a local friend has the male.





    Well, those are all the starting to hatch pictures. I'll see about finding their individual folder pictures and uploading a few of them. Unfortunately I was a casualty of Photobucket's recent stupidity, so lost all of my online pictures. Moved over to imgur, which I don't really like and now have to upload stuff all over again.
