Fail (Not for the faint of heart)

Well, I didn't get to do as much as I wanted to do for the Website, but the snake room is IMMACULATE!

That is something to feel proud of...

And I am!

But with the fact that I accomplished some, I didn't accomplish all.

I hope that today after work I can actually get in there and make it happen.

I have been slowly organizing so that it will happen.

There is a lot of background work that is required before I actually have everything ready for the website, as you can understand.


And to top it all off, the Bunchi het Hypo to Spider clutch is hatching, and the babies are mostly deformed, with one Stinger Bee dead in the egg.

I'm not sure what is going on, but the eyes are bugging out, short jaws, and the tail is completely curl kinked on one of them.

This was a sad realization, and I honestly have not had this bad of luck with a season as I have this year.

I am trying to remind myself that this is part of what happens when you breed animals, but it still sucks really bad. I am not even sure if this guy is able to see, much less eat and function properly.

I am stuck trying to figure out what to do, which right now I'm not sure.

There is at least one more animal that has the same eye problem, but I haven't seen it out of the egg yet, so we shall see what else is going on.

As for me... I'm going to try and suck it up.

It happens, it is part of life, and although this is not ideal, it happened.

Handle it, Heather.

And to those of you out there that may not have experienced this yet, if you do this long enough, it will happen. And it's not fun.

Remember that this is part of life, part of breeding animals, and not everything comes out perfect and beautiful. There are the special cases that make you do some soul searching as to what to do. 

What would YOU do to this little baby?

Have a great soul searching day, my friends.

Aw, that sucks. And I did have a small heat spike this year, so I'm pretty worried about my pied and pewter clutches.

I guess wait and see what happens after he sheds? If it's just the eyes and the tail and the jaw, then he might eat and survive. But there could be deformities inside as well that you don't know about. :(
