Thanks to everyone for your comments.

Hit the odds, 12eggs- 3 whites, as you could imagine I'm stoked with the result.

I'm going to hold onto these ones for future breeding as i believe its better to use albino olives from het-het pairing.

I will be shore to post more pics when there out.

Cheers

I was speaking with Gavin Bedford when he dropped off my fiancées Albino and het olives. He was telling me he had the best success breeding het x albino, instead of albino x albino. He said unless you're lucky enough to get a compatible pair of albino olives, then there's little chance they will successfully breed, or the eggs will make it.

Hatchlings can dry out so up until there first shed you keep them on moistened paper towel, creates humidity and keeps them hydrated.

Olives some times have phantom pregnancy's if their not ready too breed that season, my girl has done it twice to me....her second year and this year included. She looked all the goods, then nothing and back to her usual eating rechieme.

I spoke to Gavin Bedford about what he calls 'Phantom Pregnancies' in Olives & hey I would have bet strong $ that PKs Olive was gravid in fact I was 100% sure !!!! I was wrong........ & yep Olives apparently are notorious for it. & this was not just follicle ripening that I saw the animal had what seemed to be an Ovulation & wrapped its final third around you with the classic 'tightness' of a gravid snake also....... but hey Next Year !!!

thanks for that James you proved my sanity........ I have NEVER seen another python type do this...... once ovulation ocurrs there is no way back & either slugs or eggs have to be layed. They simple could not have ovulated hey.

Exactly, no ovulation, no eggs, the joy of working with olives:D
