All of Cookie’s eggs have at last hatched and we have thirteen busy little snakes. Two are amelanistic! Hmmmm.. What percentage is that? The featured photo above gives you a good look at Sherbet, the healthy Amel that hatched second. Zoom in on those beautiful red eyes. Sadly the Amel that hatched first, Rainbow, has a spinal deformity that is called a “kink”. From what I have researched, as long as she eats, makes waste and sheds properly then she can live a long normal life. If you zoom in on the little Okeetee Corn’s eyes you will see they are getting cloudy. Our corn snake handlers know what that means! Notice the babies are out of their incubation shoebox and exploring their new “nursery”. I lined a 10 gallon aquarium with moist paper towels, added two shallow water dishes and added lots of places for them to hide. The heat lamp is on one side. I measured several of the babies and it seems that most are about 25cm long! A good healthy size for newborn snakes. The next big event that we are awaiting is for all 13 babies to shed. After their first shed they will be ready for their first meal, a pinkie mouse. I am hoping for Friday or Saturday for their first feeding!
