My female olive has been heavily gravid for a while now and she finally dropped this past saturday, ten beautiful big white eggs!

Before she dropped...

Nice. Hope your incubator was ready.

Good Job. These are not easy snakes to breed in captivity. Best of luck with the incubation. Are the parents from the same locality?

Good stuff!
One of the snakes many try to breed and never succeed, most of them have WC females which drop eggs not quite the same ;)

At the moment I have my Olive clutch, two skaapsteker clutches, a nightie clutch, a bhs clutch and a corn clutch incubating. The Olive and corn clutches are from my breeding and the rest are from the display snakes at the park I work at: )
