Latest News

It's been a busy month for us. Here's what's been happening:

We have three clutches of Honduran milk snake eggs (22 eggs total). The babies should include normals, albinos, anerythristics and ghosts. These babies will be for sale, so let me know if you're interested.

Gopher Snakes
We adopted a pair of San Diego gopher snakes last week. We plan to use these spirited snakes to add a little variety to our presentations.

Ghost Honduran
We also took in a very problematic ghost Honduran milk snake from a breeder friend of mine. The snake has some weird kinks in her body and is a chronic regurgitator. I'm going to try to work with her and get her healthy.

Texas Rat Snake
The Texas rat snake I rescued last month is doing well and showing no permanent damage from his unfortunate run-in with a car tire. He's eating well and is fairly easy-going.

Well, that's all, except for the usual feeding and cleaning.

Another Clutch

Last night one of my other Honduran females started laying. When I checked this morning she had dropped seven eggs.

Honduran Eggs

Last night and into the early hours this morning, one of my Honduran milk snakes laid eight eggs. They were so large that I had to use two egg boxes to hold them all. These pics show the first five eggs in the box and her laying the sixth egg.

We've got another clutch of eggs on the way, this time from one of our Honduran milk snakes. Some of you may remember her from the shows we did at Caraway and Spicewood Elementary schools. As I type this, she's working on her third egg. Here's a pic of her at science night, and I'll snap some egg pics a little later.
