Bingo!

On December the 1st, I posted a little blurb about the "Pre-ovulation Swell" which I first noticed about fifteen years ago. I wrote a lengthy description about this occurrence which can be read and seen if you like at the following link:

Pre-ovulation Swell

I also posted a link to a video showing what the "Pre-ovulation Swell" looks like. At least what it looked like in one large Monster Tail Hypo female that was in the "thick of it" on that date.

Here are a couple pictures of that female in the "Pre-ovulation Swell".





I had predicted that she would have that ovulation within two weeks from that Date. Then on December 3rd I noticed that she was definitely in shed. She was really dark and her eyes were clouding over. "Bummer", is exactly what I thought after seeing that happen. You see, that normally means that the ovulation will not occur for some time. Usually around six weeks later between that coming shed and the next one. They almost never ovulate while opaque. I have actually only seen that happen one time before, but happen again it did! I guess I don't mind too much... LOL She is really massive now moving about in slow motion as they do when ovulating with a gigantic mass that I love to see. This is great since shortly I can move this little male Motley onto another female to try to do it all over again.

I thought I would post a couple more pictures along with additional video to illustrate what has happened here in the past few days. Here is a picture of the very opaque ovulating Monster Tail Hypo:



Here is a close up shot of her head clearly showing that she is in fact fully opaque:

Oh and just for fun... here is another video showing a male Pearlescent Boa all stretched out wondering what to do with that big female he is rooming with...
