    And it is done! All babies have hatched. We ended up with 10 beautiful babies: three normals, three hypos (hypomelanistic--greatly reduced, but not removed, black pigment, so they're quite a bit...

    Well, I know where you can get some well-bred babies... :D

    ilmjumper--I know! Sooooo cuuuuute! In the past I've taken them out as they hatched to weigh, document, and put in individual containers,...

    Woke up to see this mini baby pile. :D Two hypos (the redder ones), Turtle-the-redder-than-normal normal, and our first stripe! Looks to be a vanishing stripe, like his daddy (although daddy is a...

    Eee! I love this! The pippies are sticking out their little noses now, so I'm getting a better idea of what's in those eggs. :D My heart, it melts. Plus someone else cut through their egg this...

    I think RacetrackReject's description nails this better than I could. :) I knew it had something to do with them still absorbing their yolk sacks, or something along that like. I don't know for sure...
  6. WHOOPS--gates open while a horse was still being loaded at Del Mar

    Holy crap! :eek: :eek: Can you imagine how scared and pissed, well, *everyone* involved was (except perhaps the starter, who was probably scared and horrified) over this? Glad no one was hurt.

    About 8-10" or so--and a teensy weensy 7-10g. When I checked on the eggs this morning, Turtle's wee little self looked up at me and I was struck, again, by how tiny they are first out of the egg!

  8. Eeee! Day 59 started with our first PIPPIE!...

    Eeee! Day 59 started with our first PIPPIE! Yaaaaay! This is record time--Cleo's clutches went 71 and 64 days.

    And, not to be outdone, our little overachiever was already completely hatched and...

    He'll likely have some scarring. :( It will take a few sheds for the healing to show. Like with all things reptile, it's a s-l-o-w process.
  10. Too late! :lol: Heh...while we were driving home,...

    Too late! :lol: Heh...while we were driving home, I was reading about the Queen Mary (snake was near Long Beach, so we made a mini day trip of it) to my husband. The QM was built on the Clyde River...

    Good night, the owner amassed over $100,000 in legal fees. I hope there is some way she can recover that.

    Picked him up today! He's in a container in my lap as I type. (So--pics later. ;) ) Very nice people I will say; they just don't know much so it's good they're getting out of snakes (and they seemed...

    Got mine today! Haven't had time to really look through it, but wanted to report I got it. :)
  14. Still nothing here too. Boo.

    Still nothing here too. Boo.
  15. The "not fit for human consumption" thing always...

    The "not fit for human consumption" thing always cracks me up, too. Since I feed so many I buy in bulk from RodentPro, which arrives in this big ol' insulated box with "FROZEN MEAT" all over the side...
  16. Sure! Cleo's Kingdom...

    Sure!
    Cleo's Kingdom
  17. You guys inspired me to take this pic...

    You guys inspired me to take this pic of my freezer drawer. At least I keep the mice separated from the people food! :lol:
  18. Oh, wow. Thank you. What a kind and sweet thing...

    Oh, wow. Thank you. What a kind and sweet thing to say. It truly does mean so very much to me. I've been through a lot (the life-ripped-out-from-under-me sort) in the last two years, and I've...
  19. Hmm. Maybe...25-30? I feed about once every 7-10...

    Hmm. Maybe...25-30? I feed about once every 7-10 days during this time of year but slow down to about 1-2x/month in fall and winter, so it varies. I pay an average of about $0.75 per adult mouse...

    What Rudy said. :) In the cornsnake forums, newbies are often surprised to learn their corns may be unhappy in a big ole 60gal set up. They feel less secure. We have our most active male in a...

    Looks like we're getting adult corn snake #10. :eek:
  22. Hmm. The pics are inconclusive. He doesn't look...

    Hmm. The pics are inconclusive. He doesn't look as thin as Runway, at least, and his coloration with the light dorsal stripe might be creating an illusion of him being thinner than he is. He *does*...

    :) I'm awaiting more pics at the moment. The story is they got this snake a year ago at a reptile show, bred him to their female and got babies, and now want to sell him. She says she mainly wants to...

    Well, I did it. I sent an email inquiring on the boy. It was a simple request for more photos, how long s/he'd had the snake, what he's eating, and how often. I am unsure whether to say anything...

    I am on my phone so I can't type much or well, but I'm rethinking this. :eek: Of *course* I am. Oooof. I do have a spare tank... I think a lot of my hesitation is it's summer, so all he classroom...
