9 so far, at least one maybe 2 left in her. Of the 8 that my friend broughtover to incubate last month, 4 have died. Hopefully I'll have better success this time... hers were transported across town, so maybe that's the reason they died.
I AM SO EXCITED! I have been waiting for this day for MONTHS!!!

She better start eating again right away, too, damnit!

Fantastic! Those look like some healthy eggs. Congratulations.

Have you tossed the dead ones already, or are you holding them, just in case? I like to cut open eggs before I toss them to see if I can tell where the problem was. If an egg was fertile in the first place you can usually find a blood spot in the egg. Knowing whether or not the egg was fertile and if possible, at what stage the embryo died, whether or not it was deformed, etc. gives me some idea if I have an incubation problem or if the problem is from something else.

Of course, I usually let eggs sit until there's no way possible for something to hatch out of them before I'll cut them open. I've heard too many stories of people cutting open or tossing out eggs they thought were bad, only to discover they were mistaken. I have however, cut open eggs that never hatched to find a mostly formed (once a fully formed) embryo that's just plain dead, for no apparent reason.

Yay! Hope they all hatch healthy. Pretty snake.. )

This eggs are huge compared to the snake. I imagine how she felt with such a big belly!

Ironic that me, the girl who's been nonchalantly tossing eggs in the trash with no incubation attempts whatsoever, is hanging on to these eggs for dear life. I haven't even disturbed them, I can just see that they are discolored or dimpled.

I'll be describing that act for your feedback after the first round of eggs has hatched (assuming they're going to). Emotion: smile

Congrads! Big time!

Thanks everyone! I regularly chant "I'm a rescuer, not a breeder"... but a friend of mine from the herp society reminded me that we all need a source of play money income when it comes to this hobby. My husband is especially happy at the prospect of me selling animals to fund some of my annual supplies. Emotion: smile

Congratulations! Difficult to believe that so many eggs of that size could come out of that snake.
Why is it called a "children's python"?
