So... I usually save the evening stuff for the next day, but I can't help but post now.

I am devestated to report that the Black Pastel clutch that I hatched went HORRIBLY WRONG.

4 eggs were laid..

2 eggs went bad..

I cut the eggs a few days before. I knew something was wrong, but let it slide until the other two got out.

Today I get home, and one is out. It is TINY.

The other, I notice, is still in the egg.

Poke poke poke... Nothing.

I have a overwhelming feeling of dread, and I do what people don't normally do. I pull it out.

And... this is what came out.

It absolutely broke my heart... My eyes are still red from crying.. I could have done SOMETHING...

Thank god there was one alive.. And she is a girl.. She is the most BEAUTIFUL CREATURE I HAVE EVER HATCHED, and she is staying here to remind me how fragile life can be..

Seems like my luck is really not doing too well...

My heart hurts.

Heather, sorry for your loss. I know how your heart feels as we lost an entire clutch (except for one) due to a shortage in my incubator.

The baby is beautiful and I'm glad you're keeping it! Lucky snake.

Love reading your blog!! Looking forward to more of whats hatching!
