Hi. My clutch of 11 Cape Cobra has just hatched.Trouble is there are 12 hatchlings!
I noticed that 2 are much smaller than the rest and probably (obviously) came from one egg unless my maths is worse than i think!
My Brown house female did this once too.
It would be very interesting to do a DNA test to see if they are identical twins or not-They are both female.

Nice Allen congratulations on the capies. I wonder if they will look the same when they are adults?(the twins)
