I dont know? But beautiful snake!Just because it is ''common'' now, does not mean it will be so in the future.
show them the other 2 they are more clear. they look like mine are at the moment but mine are pee stained. they look ok there still white, they have no mould, your humidity is good. I was told that some eggs still hatch even when there almost flat from collapsing. leave them be and allow mum to continue what she's doing.
thanks candycaine just got your pm. i will just let her go i think i will have incubator set up in case but i might just let her do her thing she seems to know more than i do. keep you posted.

that happened to mine last year with maternal incubation what i researched on the net is that they indent/collapse when there is not enough humidity when i came back from holidays they were like that it was so hot and dry at the time and all the water bowls dried up so i misted the enclosure every day some people say u can some say u cant mist the eggs but i did and the outcome was they all hatched at 35 days %100 all healthy hope this helps ur peace of mind
Are they freshly laid? If so they'll pop out. If not recently laid then add some water to your substrate.
eggs are 1-2 weeks old (not sure when she laid) they have definetley been in the enclosure for a week yesterday. the moss around her is damp. she only has absorbant paper under her though as i wasn't expecting eggs and that was the substrate at the time. enclosure is at 75% humidity and the hide rock is at 90%+ humidity. theres not too much more i can do unless i dump the eggs in a pool. i can't believe how scary it is like they are my own children or something.

they should be fine then mine were alot worse than yours and remember she wont sit on the eggs if they are no good
hey just an update. i just checked on my girl and her eggs. They(eggs) are still very white have not sunken anymore, maybe even improved but she tightly coils around them whenever i check now so hard to get a real good look. anyway will keep u posted maybe even try and get some pics if she lets me. how many more days to go until they hatch.................
oh and a question i have had but can't seem to find an answer. If the eggs are kept at a temperature that is too hot what would they do, i mean how would they look if they got over cooked? And if the embryo dies does the mother know and will she leave them? Also i have not candled mine i don't think my girl would let me but if they are still all white does that mean they should be fertile?
we are at least 11 days into maternal incubation.
sorry i havent got any answers for you but wanted to say good luck!!
