My first clutch went terribly wrong. The female was not acting gravid (very healthy appetite while gravid) nor did we notice any lumps when we checked. We just noticed she was a lot larger than normal. Well she laid 15 beautiful large white eggs to which we were not expecting and they were found midday over 60 days ago. Since we weren't expecting they had become dehydrated a bit. We tried our best to get everything the eggs needed but through the months we had 14 eggs die on us. August second marked day 60 of incubation and when I cam home the egg looked piped. Me and my husband were confused because the cuts looked like it was cut from the outside of the egg since underneath the membrane was still attached. I can see a snake on the inside but, it's not moving at all any time I check. What I want to know is do failed fertile eggs sometimes crack open on their own, or do you think I'm just being overly worried and this is normal for a healthy live snake?
