    Corn Snakes!

    I believe I have yet to post about my own pets here, so I decided it was time. I own 3 corn snakes currently, ages being at 4, 6, and 8 with the pics, respectively.
    The first is my male, Starfire, a typical amelanistic (or albino) het for anerythrism. He was a rescue, a friend's cat brought him home after either someone irresponsibly released him or he escaped. He's a bit of a handful, very energetic and not very fond of the dogs who share our home.

    My younger female, Midnight, and anerythristic het for amelanism. She is the daughter of my first corn snake, a 5 1/2 foot snow corn named Frosty, who passed away 2 1/2 years ago at probably 13 years old. She has his personality though, for the most part, being very gentle and inquisitive.

    And lastly, my oldest female, an orange-phase Candycane corn named Candice. She's my mother's favorite, and has quite the sassy personality. Not mean, but extremely energetic most of the time and terribly curious


    Though they are mainly pets, all three have been involved in breeding attempts as well, and hopefully I will be able to get babies from them again next year.

    So, the snakes ended up breeding again this year, both females gravid.
    Candice here was the first to show signs

    Midnight (here in one of their nest boxes) is currently preparing to exit the pre-natal shed cycle

    But the biggest news: as of today, Candice laid 21 eggs, 20 of them appearing fertile.

    And the second female, Midnight, has laid her eggs! 15 in total, all appear fertile when candled. And they're on average around 25% larger than Candice's eggs

    Puns, puns galore....

    There are 33 eggs that have proven fertile, and all are coming along well. Hopefully I should see the first clutch hatching around the first or second week of June.

    Was taking a pic to prove a point to someone else, but decided it could go here too: me and my two girls
