Ok, so I know that snakes are naturally raw eaters, but I just had to celebrate and post about this. This is my first year breeding my ball pythons (I breed for color and pattern morphs) and I went through all the steps of introducing the snakes, checking for locks, ect. Finally she ovulated and had her pre-lay shed. But no eggs. I waited and waited, and finally 2 months, 1 week, and 3 days later, she lays 6 eggs!
I got the incubator running and put them in today. 59 days till their expected hatch date! If anyone is interested, I can post pictures of the parents and the eggs. I'm just so excited!
And for anyone who likes rescued animals, I also rescue reptiles and hope to have an actual reptile rescue up and running when my husband and I own a home. I actually have one rescued ball python right now named Ross. He's been adopted by my co-worker and will be going home this summer when my co-worker gets his new apartment. :)
