    Talking What a surprise!!

    ... eggs!!

    This was actually 100% unexpected in that she showed absolutely none of the usual behavioral signs that she was even ovulating or carrying eggs, up until they were laid two days ago or earlier yesterday. I was even handling her out in my garden 3 days ago! Yikes! LOL. She also had not even been bred since last October, and now she suddenly lays eggs 7 months later! Completely unexpected!

    I popped back in, just wanted to thank those who gave me advice and answered my questions YEARS ago when I was first trying to breed, for anyone who is still active! I have really had terrible luck with female ball pythons, and now I have my first clutch. Father is Yukon, that darn leucistic who fasted for 7 months (which is also the reason she hasn't been bred for 7 months), so the whole clutch will be leucistics.

    The funny thing about this girl is that I received her QUITE overweight, fat rolls and looking super puffy and that whole thing... I was also told that her past clutches included slugs. So then, I have only fed her maybe 6~8 times in the past nearly 1.5 years, she lost a bit of weight and is a healthy weight now, and she produced no slugs this time!

    Laying on top of eggs!


    Five healthy eggs! They are all alive with veins at the moment! I hope they last through incubation



    The one in the very back has a dimple in it today, but I'm probably worrying prematurely...

    Congratulations! I love "surprises"! And they look pretty good too.
