At long last, my first good clutch of Texas Indigos ever is hatching. The eggs were laid on 5/12, and the first hatchling emerged yesterday on 8/18 early in the morning. As of right now, 10 of the 12 babies have emerged, and the other 2 eggs have slit. These were also incubated at 75-77 degrees on moistened Perlite.

Its interesting to compare these guys to the baby BTs and Easterns that I've also recently hatched. Of the three species, the BTs are the longest and the slenderest. The Easterns are the most sedate and don't mind being picked up at all. The Texans are not as long as the BTs, but are super robust and way thicker than the Easterns. They basically came storming out of the egg with a ton of attitude. Several have given me full on threat displays, the kind where they rear back and charge while hissing and rattling their tails. Cute little guys. These guys just might be my favorites, because even though they're docile, they've got sass for sure.

Needless to say, I'm super excited about these guys hatching, but its going to be interesting with school having just started and over 30 baby drys to get going...
