I tell ya’, I think there is something to hormone cycling in ball pythons. This girl, Fat Albert, ovulated a week after Millie, the Momma of Clutch 14. Yet they both laid today. 12 eggs. Also, Fat Albert is like 9 years old and was named Fat Albert way before the public (Me, anyways) knew what a douche Cosby turned out to be. But he doesn’t get to steal Fat Albert’s name away from her. Hey Hey Heeeeeey!
This is Millie! She spent her first 2 years of life living in my classroom as a classroom pet! She moved to my facility once she was big enough to be a momma. This is her second clutch and should produce Orange Dream Pieds, regular Pieds and hets! 9 eggs!
The power of a het animal. This little girl only lays 4-5 eggs at a time. But in the past her babies have been absolutely stunning. You would never know it just looking at her.
Ohh yeah, 9 big solid eggs with a chance at Orange Dream Axanthic Pieds! Oooo Baby!
Clowns! And not a car to ride in anywhere! 8 big, healthy eggs!
Lavender albinos from a Lav Albino x a het Lav Albino. This girl gave me 8 big eggs!
Decent shot at some highway pieds!!! Every baby will get Yellowbelly and 3 or 4 of the 7 eggs should get gravel and those 3 or 4 will be Highways!
This wasn’t the most cutting edge genetics by any means. Bongo Cinnamon x het Lavender. But I got 16 eggs! That’s a massive clutch. You know that Momma is going to get the prime, Top Shelf rat next week. She earned it!
This momma didn’t read the manual! She didn't look like she was going to go. So a week ago I offered her a small rat and she ate. So I figured we were done for the season! Than boom, a week later: 7 eggs! Hoping for some female banana leopards!
My most anticipated clutch of the year take 2! TSK Snow x Axanthic Pied, possibly Super Orange Dream. 8 big eggs.
Best case scenario these will be : TSK Axanthic Orange Dreams double het Albino Pied.
At the very least the should be Orange Dream het Albino, het Pied, het TSK Axanthic and het unknown line of Axanthic.
OH BABY!!! 7 eggs, each of which is a shot at Orange Dream Axanthic Pieds!!! So awesome!
First shot at Clowns for the year!
The Dam is a Yellowbelly, Pastel, Possible GeneX, het Pied and the sire is Hi-way het Pied! Long shot at Hi-Way Pieds but it will be an amazing clutch any way you cut it- I should get some Hi-way and Ivory 66% het pieds, and maybe some Ivory and Hi-Way Pieds and who knows, I could get a Hi-Way, Pastel, GeneX Pied!!! 7 UGLY eggs but ugly eggs are way better than NO eggs!
This is one of my favorite little girls, she is about 5 years old, I just never bred her before. If she doesn’t prove at least I’ll make some gorgeous Coral Glow, Cinnamon het Pieds!
So ya’ know how everyone tells ya’ that your female ball python will lay some eggs when she hits 1500 grams or is 3 years old? This girl never read that manual. 8 1/2 years old! 1800grams post lay (I didn’t weigh her pre-ovulation). She has locked up with every breeder male pied I have had for the past 6 years. But nothing, every year she would go off feed and than go back on. Nary an egg in sight.
The last three locks were Bongo Cinnamon, so that is the best probability for a sire. In 60 days we will find out the answer! All the eggs had great veins. Nice!
This experienced Momma laid 8 big fat eggs for me. I used her to mentor some young males so these eggs will be a bit of a surprise. They could be GeneX Yellowbelly Pastel Pied mixes or maybe Orange Dream Pieds.
Another of my original het Pied girls. With about her third or fourth clutch from my original YellowBelly Pastel GeneX Pied male. 9 eggs and a slug.
More het pieds! I'm looking for Ivory mixes that are all het pied here! Some ugly eggs! But all viable and ugly don't matter!
Working towards some hets, I'd like a male triple here- a Yellowbelly, Pastel, Banna het clown male. I'd love that combo in a female but its a male maker banana so I'm not holding my breathe I'll get a female. Still... Plus I should make some YB and Pastel combo het clown girls for the future! 10 huge beutiful eggs, though one of them proved to not be fertile- no veins.
9 eggs! 8 healthy eggs and 1 with no veins. This girl was one I used to get a couple of younger males going as well. 2 Yellowbelly GeneX Pieds, And a Pastel GeneX Pied. So we will get variations of those genes here!
