Baby boa constrictors. Mom is real dark, dad was probably a pastel (gotta mix males to give them a challenge lol)




Only corn snake baby that made it


Leopard gecko egg (you can see SOMETHING in there).. I didn't want to mess with the other ones too much, and they had too much dirt caked on the outside to see through.

OMG those snakes are so beautiful. And you'll get a better view into that egg when you can get into complete dark. I kept the 'bator in my closet where there were no windows.
How many days along is that egg, and how many days do they go? How do you like that flashlight app? lol

I can get some of the baby lizards (hatched) in a few. Kinda have to take care of some of the rest of the house. I'll check the date that they were laid as well (the ones that hatched already) I'm not sure how long they go off hand. Usually it's three weeks from breeding to the first egg lay though.

I couldn't find the app that's the actual illumination one on my phone, this is called flash light or something.

I have to put something in for size comparison for the little corn too, he's tiny and cute. The boas all bite lol. They're just like their mom.

Cool! My DH has a few ball pythons and used to have a snow corn snake. He also has a Southern Pine. He'd have more if I let him Unfortunately I started this "addiction" by buying him his first snake for his birthday 6 years ago.

Here's a few more, and Foxfire (sorry haven't be observant of names if they were used) this leo hatched exactly 6 weeks from the lay date.

Do you have to rotate your eggs? With these we have to be very careful NOT to rotate they will 'drown'.

Same corn with size comparison:

Yea the eggs need to be turned 2 or 3 times a day so the embryo won't stick to the inside of the shell. You stop turning them on day 18 so they will have 3 days to get in a "heads up" position to pip. There is an air cell at the fat end of the egg which is where they will break into first and start breathing before they break the shell. It's so cute to hear them peeping from inside the eggs!
And that corn snake is so tiny! lol
Oh, and my name is Rebecca.

I want pictures of your alligators!

I absolutely love snakes. I have since I was a little little kid. When I was 5, I already knew what a herpetologist was, what they did, and that I wanted to be one. My parents got me my first snake for Christmas when I was in kindergarten. It was a little eastern ribbon snake that I named Sam. He passed away during our move, and we got another ribbon snake that I named Sam Jr. So creative. When he passed, I got a bunch of corn snakes that I kept for awhile, then I got too busy to really take care of them so they went to a friend. Now I can't have a snake, since we're about to move into base housing, but once we're out of housing I think I'll get another.

I'm already seeing interest from Ali in snakes and other reptiles. Here are a couple pics from like March of us at the DC Zoo. The first pic is a Gaboon Viper and the 2nd is the snapping turtle. I wasn't able to get a good pic of her looking at my fave snake, but next time I will. That's an eyelash viper, btw

We only have two left, had four at one time, but one went to the guy who does some reptile show all over the US (the name escapes me right now) and one to a fella up north. They're not too aggressive, but they do think every time we mess with them it's feeding time.

So cool! I have to admit I'm afraid of large gators, but I think they're really cool at the same time. I dated a guy who lived on Blackwater Lake in GA as a kid and still went back there all the time. He wanted to take me there to go jetskiing and such, I asked if there were gators and he said "yeah, but the mostly leave you alone". Yeah I sat on the dock and watched.
