Clutch of wheatbelts and a clutch of windoras
Hi everyone, loving the photos. I dont have any snakes yet but am doing all the research I can. Can you tell me what gravid is? and I assuming a slug is a rotten egg. There seems like there is a routine with how they mate, shedding then mate then wait 4 weeks ish? something like that? Congrats to everyone on their beautiful babies, cant wait till I have one.
gravid is when the female has eggs that haven't been layed yet a slug is an un fertilized egg
and a rotten egg is a fertile egg that for some reason died in development stage.

buy yourself the keeping and breeding Australian pythons book its the breeders bible to a more knowledgeable understanding how it all works. fantastic book well worth the price. also so much info on most species you can keep in Australian and breed. I use it as a guide line.
A few that have hatched or are going to hatch....
BHP eggs soon to hatch
My girl with her eggs, will hatch soon
Pygmy with eggs
Do you use maternal incubation fay?
update pic's taken just now of my eggs.
small clutch 1 died they have only a couple days to go. day 47
large clutch 5 died 24 left day 35
No, I incubate them all...
That does make sense cause the top pictures in the post are of the eggs in incubator tubs

how long after pre lay can spotted's go my girls a 30 days and looking like not a lots happening appart from being huge
how many days after laying did they start pipping?
52 days i did things a bit different as it is hot in darwin as you know. Some days the incubator reached up to 36 degrees only for a short period though. avg was 31 at night to 33 in day though
