We closed on our new home today and came home to a clutch from a Classic het Palmetto Hypo Diffused ph Snow that was bred by an animal with the same genetics.

Just one clutch today from a Classic het Strawberry Snow, but we are appreciative that the egg laying has slowed for the time being. The next week is moving week for us, so less egg laying makes it a little less stressful for us.

No clutches into the incubator today, but our female Kenyan Sand Boas are looking very thick with babies. We have three females due toward the end of September. The female pictured below is an Anery Stripe.

Today was a slow day from an egg laying standpoint, but the chaos continues elsewhere as we anticipate our move next weekend. Stay tuned for lots of photos as our new facility gets the finishing touches starting this Friday.

Today was the slowest egg laying day we have had in mid June, with just one clutch of corn snake eggs today. However, it was one that I was crossing my fingers for. Last year we paired a Masque Scaleless with a German line Mandarin, but unfortuntely she gave us an entire clutch of slugs. This year we decided to pair this Mandarin witha Scaleless Okeetee het Snow and got a nice lcutch of pearly whites this morning. This clutch will produce Classics het Scaleless Amel Kastanie and Amels het Scaleless Mandarin. We plan to hold back several babies when they hatch, so keep your eye out for the available babies in October.

Three more clutches of eggs went into the incubator today, which makes a total of 138 colubrid clutches for the year. Today we received clutches from a Red Factor Okeetee het Fire, a Kastanie het Diffused ph Amel, and a Stripe Anery het Amel Strawberry. The Stripe Anery gave us some of the cubed-looking babies that were very popular last year so watch for those to start hatching around October 2nd.

The first round of egg laying is starting to slow down, as most of our females have laid their first clutch. Two more girls gave us clutches today, which makes 135 for the season. The first was a Ghost het Motley bred by a Red Factor Anery Motley het Hypo Amel. Our second clutch of the day was given to us by a Mexican Black Kingsnake. These eggs should start to hatch around October 1st.
