Thanks Carl! I wasn't sure what to expect from the alternas being that this my first year with them. I couldn't believe how big the knob eggs were! I also just got woma eggs so these alterna eggs just seemed soo tiny! I will keep you posted.
Thanks again,
Brett

:Apples and oranges, Brett. Knoblochi eggs are longer than alterna eggs. Like Pyro's, those tri-colors lay surprising large eggs for the girth of the snake.

:My alterna eggs aren't huge by any means, but it's not so much size as mass. It's a weight thing. Even oddly colored eggs hatch sometimes. If you see blood vessels, they're good to go. Incubate them anyway, if they're bad, you'll know soon enough.

:Good luck, and congrats!
:Carl
