::Nice snake Brandon. What better than a little blue cheese, mixed in with the yellow cheese? How are the new eggs doing?

:Thanks guys. I guess the eggs are still ok. I've never done artificial, so I don't really know what to look for. They are still white, but not as full. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I hope it goes ok for you Brandon. White is good, but if the eggs are getting those crater looking dents that look sort of like pushed in wrinkles they are to dry.

I destroyed 7 Lemon hatchlings with dried eggs from using the no substrate method with to dry of conditions. What I had done was first set them up on damp vermiculite and they were staying nice and full. My worry was they almost looked too full by about mid incubation and I was concerned about the eggs sweating so I put them on a plastic tray. Shortly after I got them into the no substrate condition they took on little craters. What I didn't realize is many of the eggs were also denting in from the bottom. The yolks were becoming dehydrated making it difficult for the developing hatchlings to take on the yolk which was thickening as time passed.
