Thanks for the comments. Ive sexed them at 2.6, even at this age theyre pretty easy.

Fooble - Ive not heard of a striped cornuta before but I wonder if whatever irregularity that caused the deformity was not in effect, if the striping wouldnt have happened.

Craig - Are you calling me a cr@p photographer??? ;)

TonyK - I have a pair of cornuta from Luderitz which were mating but nothing came of it (Ive put up a pic of it down below). Ive had atropos locked up a week or so ago, a little early but you never know. The xeropaga had entwined tails a few times but I could never see a definate lock up.

Crested Gecko - The babies are around 12cm long.

Here are some better pics.

Very well done. Can't wait to work with cornuta one day. The striping may well be due to deformity. I've seen striped egg eaters as well as striped carpet pythons which were all dead in eggs while the normal siblings all hatched out without problems. If you can it would be interesting to see whether its internal structure was possibly altered.

Thanks shamroth, if you're referring to bone and tissue development then yes its was very much deformed.
