Well, clutch 29 is on the ground, and I am sad about it.
I have been very excited about making Mojave combos this year, and was waiting for this female to go for a while.
I bred another Mojave female, but she didn't take, so basically, this female was it.
So she finally laid yesterday (yes, Yesterday... the date I wrote on the card was wrong), and I was ABSOLUTELY THRILLED. The wait was over, and the eggs were on the ground...
Until I opened up her coils...
Now, yes, I know, five eggs is not bad at all, but the fact that there are two slugs that could have been eggs upsets me, as I should have let the males pair with her longer.
I feel like it was something I could have prevented.
She is a first time breeder for me, so it can also chalk it up to that, but I always feel like there could have been something else I could have done.
I think the dissapointment is also because of the fact that I was looking forward to this clutch so much.
Now the Mystery Males on this clutch are:
Pastel Super Mojave
So it should be interesting.
Come on, five eggs. Show me what you got...
Have a fantastic day, my friends
