My Morelia bredli (Bredl's python)

Belly tanning

I've been checking up on here religiousely every 6hours or so, as I feared she will lay them onto the heatpad.
This is my 1st glance this morning...
Image

But tightly under mother's coils are the rest of the eggs
Image

She huffed and puffed a bit,but I safely removed her eggs from her without injury ;)
Image

26 and one infertile in total.She obviousely has lost a lot of weight and I actually fealt bad taking her eggs.I think one day I will set up a cage for her to incubate her eggs by herself.

WOW man, congrats. That's a massive clutch! I see 26 viable eggs and that one dud?

Your female is gorgeous too.

Well done.

Thanks Kev and Westley.Ye.all but one looks good,but they where allready quite hard when I got to them.Whilst seperating them,one egg pulled of quite a bit of the one next to it and left a very thin patch-hope it's OK,but the rest all looks good.So I had to leave the rest of the clutch intact.

At last Ferdo. Take some roller towel and fold a double layer. place it over those dented eggs and moisten it, not sopping, but moist. Check every 2 days and moisten when necesarry until those dents have dissappeared. Best of luck Buddy. How are the others that I am interested in coming along.

Huge congrats Vuduman! That's a really nice looking female, and a big clutch! Her first lay? Or has she given you babies before? Stunning dude, stunning!

That is great, congrats and well done Ferdo.
Those eggs look great, I would not worry about the dented ones, they should fill out in the incubation tub.

Now the longest wait ever starts. :D

Well done, that is just awesome :D

Thanks guys.I am very happy indeed.They should take just under 2 months to hatch.Any idea what I can fix the one egg with that has a thin part in the shell now?I think it will rupture once it starts to swell.I am actually concidering putting a piece of ductape over the thin part.Good idea-or bad idea?
