Black bloods hatching!

Sunday, August 19th, 2012

Well our black bloods are hatching!  It's looking like 12 of the 15 are going to be healthy little bite machines.  One egg died with the hatchling not quite fully formed, one died nearly fully formed, and one hatchling has a severe underbite.  

And so begins the long wait…

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

Our superblack 'male' laid her eggs right on schedule!  Fifteen nice little chicken eggs were hiding in that sphagnum moss.  After losing pretty much the entire clutch on our last Sumatran short-tailed breeding, I decided to split this clutch between two six quart containers rather than put them all in one large tub.  Not sure if it really had anything to do with my problems back in 2010, but why risk it?  I've been very successful hatching out ball pythons eggs in the smaller containers so I'll stick with what I know works this year.  Now I've just gotta keep my fingers crossed that we hatch out a male who looks as good as this girl...

Black bloods are cool…

Friday, April 29th, 2011

but blue bloods are even cooler!  Love how these guys look when they're going into shed. 😀

Well that’s kind of a bummer…

Saturday, April 16th, 2011

Turns out both our super black Sumatran Short-tailed Pythons are girls!  No wonder we haven't been able to get any eggs from them for the past few years.  Here's the 'male' locked up with our light-headed boy Onyx.  Unfortunately Onyx is now the only male P. Curtus we have, so here's hoping for a hatchling that looks as good as the girls!

Best year and worst year all rolled into one…

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

We've had some really good luck with the ball pythons this year.  Unfortunately our black bloods not so much.  Starting off we only witnessed one copulation between the two groups we paired up.  Then it looked like things were turning around when I came home from lunch to find that one of the girls had laid a surprise clutch.  Now however, it turns out that only one hatchling from the clutch survived.  At this point I'm pretty sure the rest couldn't pip properly and ended up drowning in the eggs.  Turns out that first one didn't get its head out of the egg until day 66 of incubation.  Anyways, here's a picture of the one that made it...

Black bloods are pipping!

Looks like the first one to peek out is a chrome head! 😀

Lunch time surprise…

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

So I'm on my lunch break, and I wander into the snake room to see if some of our ball pythons had shed last night.  Imagine my surprise when I turn around and see this!

We totally didn't expect any of our Sumatrans to go this year, especially our Hartwig animals as she only locked up once that we saw.  Fifteen nice big eggs, but a few looked like they might have been infertile when I candled them.  Few days in the incubator should be all it takes to find that out.
