Well, it looks like 6 hatchlings this year. They are from a retic pairing. The male is 22 inches and over 35 years old. The female is 19 inches and from Rare Earth stock. I cooled them this year with a portable air conditioning unit that had a maximum cooling capability of 64 degrees. There were a total of 8 eggs laid and two were infertile. I incubated them at 79-81 degrees in a hydroscopic setup similar to the one that Dr. Seward documents in his book. I know am faced with the enviable task of picking out a few holdbacks. if you had to choose a couple, which ones would you keep?

Thanks
Brian
