Interesting how this is going.....

Like I said in the previous days, I have just been waiting for action, and I have been getting it in piles in the past few days.

Here is Amadi's clutch, laid on the 7th, to a Pastel.

9 viable eggs... I've never had such a large clutch of viable eggs. I've had that many with some slugs thrown in, and a 12 slug clutch a couple of years back...

I'm pleased!

Here she is, being a good Mama.

She was a rescue back in the day.

I took her in from a boy who couldn't/didn't take care of her. She was around 2 years old, and she was only 800 grams. The guy only fed her one mouse once a month.

Long story short, he told me.. "she bites". I didn't believe him.

We were outside talking about other stuff, and what else was going on, while I was holding her in my hand. A couple seconds go by, and she bites my hand and wraps around my wrist like she was trying to eat me. It took 5 minutes to get her off of my hand.

As soon as we left, I went to my local pet store and bought a small rat. Within a minute, she was eating it.

She was starved back then, but look at her now!!!

Happy ending.
