My sunglow corn, Sunny (how original) that I bought from CAT last
year, and we didn't know what sex he was as he was (and is) so fat
and he wouldn't breed her females, and a 'normal' Emorii ratsnake Don
Soderberg gave me, minus an eye from a ratbite, are the totally
indifferent parents of eight eggs, seven of which hatched, and five
of which have just shed........and SIX of which just ate one day old
pinks! I didn't know they would/could eat before their first shed.
We opened the egg that didn't pip and the snake was fully developed but
didn't absorb its eggsack, which was still attached to its umbilicus.
Oops. They look like Cher, the Emorii normal girl, as she had no
genes for Sunglow corn.......but darned if some of them don't appear to
have a salmon cast to their head markings and to their stomachs along
with that nice normal Emorii brown.
Just wanted everyone to know. Minus an incubator and with just a
K-Mart container, perlite, and an unheat-regulated closet shelf,
I think we got blind lucky.
Now the question is what to do with them.........but they ATE, all but
one, on the first try.
For me that is incredible as I have four year olds that still don't want
to eat. As my friends know; you've heard me ***ing about this
for a couple of years. :)
