Last night 5 of my snakes eggs from my female silver corn hatched :D the funny thing was that they where not supposed to hatch for another 3 weaks. the temps have been around about 29.4c and 28.9c.
There are 4 silvers and 1 snow corn snakes

The temperatures do not seem to be much higher than normal. I cannot think one or two degrees will make a difference. Do any have kinks in their backs, because when the temps are a bit high they sometimes have this problem.

I think that there is a certain time from conception to hatching and sometimes the female keeps the eggs longer and other times she lays them early again. That messes with the "incubation time" as well.

Who was the father of these babies seeing as the one is a snow?
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

None of them have any kinks in there backs they all seem quite healthy. There was 1 that I found this morning it had died trying to get out of the egg it was half way out :( . The father is a caramel corn. It was also the mothers first clutch.

That's awesome! Congrats!

Are you sure the caramel is the father? She may have retained sperm from last year?

Mom would have to be het amel and dad would have to be caramel het anery and amel to sire aneries (silvers) and a snow... :)

Sorry about the little one who didn't make it!

It is possible that the father is a albino.
