Small, but lovely clutch

Small, but lovely clutch

Well, often we forget the ones we start out with, and sometimes it can be just as exciting to produce them, as with a new species in the collection.

On the 27th December 2014, a female brown house laid 6 lovely, large eggs for me, and exactly 62 days later, on the 27th February 2015, they started to erupt, and show themselves for the first time.

Without further ado, and in no particular order, here are pics of the new arrivals this weekend.

Nice Babies B. I really enjoy the attitude of number 5.

Thanks Roland. Yeah, it thinks it's a corn... Some nice patternless ones. Will have to see which ones I decide to keep back, and which to get rid of. Already have so many that I need to work with for next season's breeding.

Congratulations, real pretty little ones you have there. I don't think they will ever get old to me, they are such lovely snakes.
