RE: Yessss!!!
While we wait for the eggs to hatch...

Here 's a story and a contest about a two headed ball python hatched in a German zoo.

I can't wait to take some!!
Eggs are all doing well, and when candled I can now see the babies moving around inside them. All have lots of strong healthy veins lining the shells, and they are still quite full. (At the end of incubation, bout a week or two before they hatch, the eggs drastically dimple. It's normal, but if it happens too early it can mean dehydration.)

So many cats, so few good recipes.

I expect some movement of the outer shell by now... Is there?

Ball pythons don't tend to cause visible movement of the shell until they start to hatch. I can, however, see some of the babies patterns now when I candle the eggs if the babies are in the right position. Also some of the eggs have started to "dimple". That's when they kind of cave in a little at the top. It means they will hatch in a week or two. (July 30 is when I can start watching for them to hatch. If they haven't torn through by aug 5 or 6, I'll probably cut the eggs myself.)

Also, just yesterday the last girl finally laid her eggs!! 6 eggs, all look perfect!

So many cats, so few good recipes.

First egg pipped this morning! I don't like to disturb them while they are pipping, but I'll try to sneak a pic or two in the next couple days.

I am a terrible photographer, but heres a couple pics of the new babies. I'll have my daughter take proper pics after they all have their first sheds.
