Wish I could say it went off without a hitch but that wasn't the case. After a few days away from home I came back and checked the moist hide I'd provided... nothing. Picking up the female I noticed she was much smaller/lighter. A quick inspection of her enclosure revealed the eggs to be under and behind a good size bit of driftwood... 10 of them, 4 obviously dehydrated to varying extents. Despite putting them into an incubator immediately those 4 never made it... one other was infertile. After 3 had hatched with no sign of the other two hatching after another week I cut them open... both eggs had fully formed snakes with a little of the yolk still not absorbed... both dead.

So here's a pic of two of the three... a male and female. All told I have two males and a female.



Hopefully I make a better showing next year with my polyz as well as the Black Milks.

Gerry
