In Reply to: Elaphe dione eggs posted by nazza on May 04, 2003 at 04:26:31:
Nazza, I didn't study gestation times on c. Chinese dione. I had a couple clutches that were laid at the beginning of June after mating near the end of April, I believe. I only keep the South Korean dione at this time. Sorry, not much help here :(
:thank you Terry,
:yes, my dione should be central China.
:Also your dione have a gestation time of about 85 days?
::Congrats, that's quite a few. The babies should be pretty robust too. You have Chinese dione, if I remember correctly.
:::85 days after breeding my dione laid 6 big eggs, 3 normal and 1 slug. This is a pic of a big one and of a little one.... i'm incubating eggs at room temp.
