dud eggs :(

Post by Paul White » April 4th, 2011, 12:09 pm

well one of my snakes laid...2 incredibly dinky eggs, that were brittle, and one gigantic egg that was rubbery. All of them seem to be 100% bad (the large one stinks too).

damnit

I have had females lay a dud or two then lay good eggs later. Still hope if she has more in her. What day post shed is she?

this one was like 7-8 post shed. I was just floored at the giant one...I wish i'd taken a picture of it next to her, but I was just checking lay boxes on my lunch break...didn't think to have a camera ready...it was a frigging monster

Be fortunate she passed it instead of becoming impacted.
