Congrats buddy and sorry about the ones that didn't make it. I wish you all the luck with the 3 that made it. They are beautiful.

Nice one Roland.
It looks like my female is only full of slugs, so hopefully next year there will be some for me as well.

@ mitton - Don't give up hope yet Buddy. You will only know for sure when she gives birth.

On a sadder note, I now only have one survivor. But this one is as feisty as hell, will bite every time you put your hand in the tub. I have decided to keep it.

Yes, it is quite sad that only the one made it... anyway, Duma looks strong and feisty.

Sadly, the last baby has died. I tend to agree with Byron that they were born a bit prematurely, perhaps by 2 or 3 weeks.

Nevertheless, I will breed them again next season, I will get this right.

Sorry you had to go through all of this. But it is a learning curve. Stay positive and take special care of mommy.

@ Constrictor Girl - Definitely a huge learning curve for me.

I am lucky however to have people like yourself and Byron who have helped me .
And then of course, thank you to everyone on the Forum who helped keep my spirits up when all I wanted to do was just throw in the towel and sell my whole collection.

Keep a stiff upper lip.

I lost all my Carpet Python eggs this season which was also not fun, but it gives us something to strive for.

Good luck for next year. I'm sure you'll crack it.
