    Default Serenity and Atari breeding! (O.p.coxi)

    Paired them for the first time today and witnessed a confirmed lock, although I didn't get pictures of that. Really looking forward to this pairing! It's the one I'm most excited about this year.

    Such colorful snakes. How many eggs do they usually lay a season?

    They have fairly small clutches, typically between 3-6 but large females can have as many as 12. Double and triple clutching is very common with them too. The most recorded multi clutching in a season was 7 clutches but that was apparently very hard on the female in question and took her several years to recover from, so it's not recommended that one try for that many clutches back to back.

    Serenity just shed and was hanging out on top of her lay box, of course she had moved by the time I'd grabbed the camera and was nearly back in the lay box for these pictures.





    But she did poke her head out to see what I was doing when I got into her viv to remove her shed.

    What we woke up to this morning! Five on the ground and one on the way.

    Serenity lost 93 grams with this clutch, I finally remembered to weigh her to see.

    That is so odd how the eggs are so elongated. I haven't seen species lay eggs quite like that before.

    Some more egg pictures. These four seem to be doing very well.



    But I'm a little concerned about the other two, this one is one of the super long ones, it is a very heavy egg. It has sunken in in the middle but it has good veins that seem to be growing still.





    Then this other one is a bit sunken in too and has been turning colors. But it also has good veins at the moment.

    Here is the first coxi out! Weighs 11 grams and thankfully seems to have inherited Atari's temperament rather than Serenity's, for the moment at least.





    And one more coxi egg has pipped this morning.
