First Hognose Clutch

These are the first snakes I've hatched since I was a kid (which was longer ago than I'd like to admit). I bought my daughter a pair of Hognose a few years ago. She sort of lost interest in them eventually, so I took them over. This year they were big enough to breed so I paired them up. I never saw them lock up, although the male was eager enough. I didn't think he was successful, but the female laid a small clutch, and here they are, finally all out of the eggs. The odds for the albino super were 1/16 so I was happy to get one in only five good eggs.

...the old ones ... knew in their bones... that death exists, that all life kills to eat, that all lives end, that energy goes on. They knew that humans are participants, not spectators. -- Stephen Bodio, On the Edge of the Wild
