Dr. Bauer of Villa Nova writes that a wild caught trachyrhynchus gave brth to two live young, and that the female actually showed some protection of the newborns.


:Now I am no expert on R. trachyrhynchus (never even seen one in real life…lol), however I think two babies would be the norm. I believe R. trachyrhynchus are ovoviviparous, so that means the eggs develop and hatch in the body; then are then born live. Since all Rhac’s lay two eggs (normally) per clutch, I would think R. trachyrhynchus bears two babies for the fact it is still developing eggs. They are just hatching on inside. Anyway just an assumption =).
