Thanks a lot Orlando! I don't know anyone else here that has produced any, other then from gravid imports. I know I told you already, but in case you forgot, I had 2 litters born in 2011 & lost every baby. I think it was because I left them alone too long not wanting to stress them out. Viper boas shed the day they are born so with these 3 litters I started smacking them around with day old pink mice getting them to strike, & with a lot of patience & dozens of strikes they'd get the pinky stuck in their teeth & swallow it. So I'm pretty sure the key to keeping babies alive is to get them eating fast. They all now take dead unscented pinkies off tongs.

Thanks,
Dan Eby
