    Hi guys
    After having incubator issues last season and losing all of my clutches from multiple pairings I thought I would give maternal incubation a go with my WA Pilbara Stimsons Pythons. This female has done a great job. Looks like all the eggs are healthy and free of mould. They started hatching 2 days ago and to my surprise she is still coiled aroumd the young keeping them warm days after they have left the egg. She hasnt eaten since March and hasnt been interested in food. I wont offer her anything until I have taken the young away.

    Well done…….not an easy thing to do.
    your cage temps / humidity needs to be spot on……not to mention the mother involved needs to be in peek condition.
    Cheers,
    Aleks.
