It finally happened!
45 days after her prelay shed, Tootsie gave me 9 beautiful eggs. All are perfect and fertile, with strong veins.
Poor Daddy in blue shows his usual enthusiasm for things.
Here’s the pairing and my odds, if anyone’s curious: http://www.worldofballpythons.com/wizard/&male=32,41&female=40
Babies are due the second week of June! I can’t wait. :)
Oxyrhopus melanogenys (Dipsadidae), known as the Tschudi’s False Coral Snake is a nocturnal species which is found in wet and dry tropical forest of South America .
The body color pattern in this species is in triads of black bands (black-whiteblack-white-black, separated by red or orange inter-spaces), and the top of the head and the snout are black .
Baby on the move!
They’re a little early to be hatching as they’re only around 103 days incubation and the last lot hatched around 130 days. Though these have been incubated 1 degree celsius higher and weren’t found for a week or two after being laid. Im not getting excited yet but look at baby move! The first lump sticking out you see is a head and when i turn it round, the lump sticking out is a foot. I wanted to get it at an angle where you could see what i saw - teeny little claws on the foot!
