::Will she sit on her eggs like that for the full term? Do you just leave the ones that she is on and let her incubate them or do you have to get them all out and into the incubator? I don't have a GTP but i'm curious. b.t.w. Nice snakes you have there.
:There were 10 eggs not inside the beehive. I took the 10 loose eggs and set them up in an incubator using the no substrate method.
:The remaining eggs I will let her incubate inside the nest box. She did a great job her first time and seems to be doing the same now. She realy is a great Mom. She will sit on them for approx. 49 days. Towards the end of the process, she will loosen the coils, at which time babies usually start to pip.
:Here's a pic I took at day 49 a couple of years ago.
Brandon, that is so cool with the little heads sticking out of the coils. What a great picture!
