Re: Feeding and Non-Feeders. (LP)

I have seen that certain non feeders would rather take a defrosted pinky than a live mouse and other way around too. You have to experiment. I tried both with Speckles when he wasn't taking but he wouldn't have of either - he was a really fussy one. Now though, totally different story - he'll eat j...

Re: Mouldy Eggs

Well, they're near term so I'll be keeping an eye on them over the next few weeks. I'll report back.

Hoping some make it, keen to see what morphs (if any) appear.

Mouldy Eggs

Wurm laid a clutch of eggs late in November last year, her first clutch ever. She went and laid 9 eggs and I sparked to get an incubator set up and ready. They've been sitting in the substrate (vermiculite) at 29deg in a very high humidity environment but have gone mouldy. Of the nine eggs, only 2 o...

I hate Sandwich spread... that was the wife that also needed feeding. I'll be cleaning her cage later.

Feeding and Non-Feeders. (LP)

Been a while since I've been on the board, so I'll start by wishing you all a prosperous New Year. Sunday was feeding time in the house, a birthday feed for the twins (15 Jan) who are now a year old. Happy Birthday Freckles and Speckles. As it stands now, I have 7 corns in the house, 9 reps in total...

Re: Help with a clutch

Hey Spyke. Here is what you can do. keep tje eggs for about a week or two. infertile eggs will start to turn bad in about 3 weeks or less. but after the first week or two, you can candle them. Candle is a term used to try and see through the egg "shell" and see if any veins can be seen. I...

Re: Help with a clutch

Ok, new is in from the original parent.

Eragon has not been with a male since the age of 4 weeks, so chances of a fertilized clutch are non existent.

Thanks for reading.

Help with a clutch

Shocker of shocker this morning. Went to check on the kids this morning before leaving for work and noticed that my youngest beardie had laid a clutch of 19 eggs. This blind sided me, I was blissfully unaware that Eragon was a female. I payed no mind to the digging / scratching tendencies as our 5yo...

Re: Aggressive young Beardie

I acquired a young beardy too recently (he must be around 7/8 months old) and he's also displaying similar traits. He's drawn blood twice now and is not winning my favour in a hurry. I'm trying to handle him as much as possible but he lures on into a false sense of security. I can get my hand in and...

Re: Who is breeding?

You won't require permits as you live in Gauteng, you only need permits for indigenous snakes there. In the cape provinces you almost always require a permit for any animal whether it is exotic or not. Permits to transport animals between provinces are required, but people hardly bother except for ...

Re: Who is breeding?

Please pardon my ignorance wrt this topic, but where and when is a permit needed? I keep 5 corns of varying age and would like to try my hand at breeding. Are the permits for certain areas (I'm Jhb based)? are they needed for breeding / potential sale? or is it just needed for transporting to other ...

I have a bass - an ESP LTD Viper 4-string that sits in the corner. I very seldom play it. :-D

Thanks for the replies.

There is a candy Cane influence but too much yellow in her to be a true Candy Cane.
