Here's a picture of one of my olive green D. scabra taken as she was in the middle of laying 13 eggs this afternoon.

Hi...


Huge Congrats !
Really nice to see that someone breeds those kind of snakes - I´m really tired of seeing all those WC eggeaters that just dies in a couple of weeks...

That is really great, I wish more people in SA could breed egg eaters like that.

Mating

My Egg Eaters mated for the first time on 20 Nov. 2007 and I'm hoping for eggs some time in the future. Will keep you posted.

Now I am missing something! I had my egg eater for about two years now. She has grown tremendously during this time and I got a male about a month ago and on 20 November I caught them in the act - mating. Today, 17 days later I saw her on the bottom of one the ferns in her cage and on nearer inspection I saw at least one egg. I don't want to distrub her but I am a bit confused. That egg won't be fertile I suppose. Would she have layed eggs without the male? This is a first try for me and I am still learning.

I just had another look and there's two eggs now. They are much bigger than the BHS eggs that's in the incubator at the moment. It will be a pity if they are not fertile.

She layed 6 eggs and I gave her two finch eggs afterwards. She looks quite exhausted and thin.
