In Reply to: Eastern Indy Eggs... posted by dryguy on March 03, 2003 at 13:21:56:

Carl, I hate to make light of a very serious matter, but ya-ta-hey, the die are already cast eh? I like others hope to be wrong.
Like the other lads, I dont like the color (yellowish) nor variance in size n' shape...I like colubrid eggs to be a mass of snow white eggs w/ a rough rather than slick appearance.
I have observed egg retention in several sow colubrids & a few rockboas. I am inclined to believe that they perceived that they had inadequate hiding cover. Now I give my sows deep aspen w/ layers of wet seperated newpaper to select their preferred heat/humidity gradient.
I wouldnt cut her, I'd leave her to retain em, & hopefuly pass them dead & cycle her the following year, the further you keep your herps (& probably your own selves) from vets & our modern day shamans...the longer they (& you) will likely live! Lastly for now, I have noted my best producers are snakes that are allowed regular excursions to crawl about; rarely are they long term innmates??? I also like sows to cycle their body weight rather than be perpetually heavy (funny I prefer women this way too....)
Once you are properly sedated & through mourning, I & others expect you to start dribbling detailed tidbits about Argentina....
Welcome home; jg

:You can see how huge the one is...Its probably 2x the size of the others!!! It's the one that caused the problem last night...She looks like she has at least 2 more, in addition to the two I extracted this morning...I'm going to let her rest for the afternoon and see if she'll pass the others naturally..She doesn't seem to be sick or excessively stressed, but I'm trying to be careful... I gave her an injection of Baytril before manipulating her last night as a precaution... ??Comments?? Carl
