and congrats on the clutches of eggs. Both the females produced this year that's great. I know you and rob had collected a group of them a couple years ago and sent them over to Dr. Vaughan at Texas A & M for some bloodwork I believe you mentioned. Dr. Vaughan has written a new paper that follows up on the previous one. I haven't seen it or know if its published yet.
: For those interested...
: My trio of Tx corn snakes "slowinski", the debate goes on about which classification is correct, just laid their eggs. As most here probably know emoryi lay a smaller number of eggs with a larger size, and vice versa for guttata. Both of my females have laid with clutches of 21 and 20 eggs, with guttata sized eggs. My okeetee also laid with 26 eggs, both the "slowinski" and guttata eggs are nearly identical in size.
: Just thought I would share with everyone so people can start making more informed decisions in regards to classification debates. I am pretty sure these are the first captive clutch from their locale, Brazos Co., Tx. I will get some pictures up ASAP.
