Just like last year my last clutch of the year is a late annulata clutch...
Last year it was eggs from an albino female, this year it was eggs from a normal female.
I put my albino male in with this normal female after he bred to an albino female (9 bad eggs), and a spotted female (no eggs laid). When I put them together she was just fighting him off pretty good even striking at him, so I let them be for a week. When I took the male out they were curled up together so I guess they kissed and made up?
She never swelled up much, and kept to the same sporadic diet she was always on. One day I go to change her water and she's wrapped around a clutch of 5 eggs, they were pretty dried up but I knew they could bounce back.


I keep the egg containers in a closet and it happened to get cold in there starting last month, so I assume that had something to do with them not hatching right away, but it was close to 100 days incubating so I cut the top off the one egg.
The next egg started pipping the next day..



They came out fully a couple days ago. Might be the first ever het albino Mexican milks outcrossed from the Freer TX line (other than my possible het albino spotted holdbacks). Can't wait to breed them in a couple years...
