    After a sad day, we have had a good ending.. look what we found when we looked inside our incubator.. :D

    #1 hatched several hours ago, and is learning how to be a feisty little thing :p - pics 1 and 2.

    #2 and #3 are still hatching as i type! - pics 3, 4 and 5.

    These cuties are from our amel motley, Arrow, and our creamsicle male, Garfield, and have been in incubation for 54 days. In total she laid 8 eggs, but the others were all infertile. These are gorgeous little babies, and our first ever breeding of the snakes! :p

    Another week or two and we should have another load of eggs hatching from one of our other females.. uh think we need to order in a few pinkies! :D Will keep you all updated on how they get on in the big wide world :)

    And quite feisty hehe :p

    Here's hatchling #2 (motley) and #3 (sorry, the camera didn't feel like focusing properly!).

    They should shed shortly and then we'll try them with their first feeds, here's hoping their natural instincts kick straight in! :)

    Hehe thanks, if you were over here they could be yours!! :p The little motley is already highly in demand! - we had someone enquire about it last night, but one of our friends has first dibs on it, unless it's male, then Joe wants to keep it!, popular little thing :D

    Thanks Toni. :)

    Haha Julianne,. we have had 6 of them breed - there's another 30+ eggs to hatch yet, and some might be double clutching .. we're going to be over run!! :D

    Wow, Bitis...that's amazing! What a great way to be overrun! :rolleyes:

    LOL Juliane, well that's certainly a good point! - being overrun by lots of snakes isn't a bad thing in my eyes :p Shame we don't live on the same continent as you guys, I think many of you would make excellent parents to our little ones!

    And here's hoping we can sex them accurately in a few weeks,. Joe would like to keep the motley if it's male to breed with a great plains rat in the hopes of producing some pure creamsicles. All this genetics is very tiring to me! :D And if it's not then it's got a good home waiting at our friends' and we might get another from her next clutch (mother looks like she is double-clutching by the way!)
