My first breeding season

My first breeding season

Postby kfc223 » Tue Mar 27, 2012 8:29 pm

Hi everyone

Well to cut a long story short this topic is about my First breeding season. I have only been keeping snakes for a year. I think I had a good season this year, but I would like your opinions on my season.

I had 5 clutches this season (not too bad for a first season) :
- 2 clutches from my big kzn female. (she double clutched from one pairing)
- 2 clutches from my shemale all infertile (we thought she was a boy)
- 1 clutch from my het albino female (pairing was Albino x het)

My first clutch from the big kzn female hatched about a month ago


Some shots of the hatchlings took now at one month old


My second clutch from the massive kzn female has started to pip today at 59 days at 28c


And my albino clutch should hatch in a month and a half.


I will post pics of the kzn second clutch as soon as they have shed. I will also post shots of the het/albino clutch when they hatch. My hatch rate is 100%. The infertile clutches rotted so no pics of them.

Any comments, advise, or questions would be appreciated.

Congratulations on the breeding man. The hatchling pics look great, nice genes there with the big KZN mom I take it haha. You must be pretty excited when they started hatching. Its a pity about the infertile clutches but hey it happens. Let's hope next time all the cluthces produce hatchling. I'm pretty interested to see how the albino clutch comes along. Keep up the good work and keep the pics coming...JP

I can personally say that the female hatchling I have that you bred is stunning.

probably a really stupid question, but is it very obvious when the females are pregnant? Does anyone have any photo's. i have just got 2F and 1M and I think the big one might be, but i'm not sure.
