Carrot, Paradox Albino Cape House snake.

I forgot to share this little one on this forum. It hatched on the 15th of this month.
Here is the original post about her.

Had this little one hatch out 3 days ago and it had some issues, an enlarged eye and a half absorbed yolk, that I was thinking it would either die from or I'd have to euthanize it.
Surprisingly, after 3 days of care it now looks like it might have a chance. The eye has shrunk to a normal size, though I believe it might be blind in that eye and the belly button is misshapen but closing. Have to see if it will eat and if it can pass food but feel better about sharing pictures of this Paradox Albino Cape House snake now.

Re: Carrot, Paradox Albino Cape House snake.

Post first shed update on little Carrot from today.

Someone said that it looked like a moldy carrot and I can't disagree, so Carrot it is!

Bum eye looked bad during shed but is looking much better now. She is losing it but it seems like it is going to heal well.

Refused first feeding attempt but despite that, I've got a better feeling about her chances now. (Only 60% sure on gender, haven't popped her yet.) Tail shape looks male but can't see 'penes by candling ...

Gorgeous baby! Too bad about the eye, but it shouldn't affect it too much. Are infected/lost eyes common in albino house snakes?

No, it's not common to my knowledge. The eye was malformed when it hatched, so it was most likely an incubation error.

I was just curious, it's fairly common in boas so I was curious if it was elsewhere, too. The infections happen while still forming inside mom with boas, too.

Again, very cool snake! Don't think I've seen a paradox albino house snake before. I assume this one will be a keeper?

I've never heard of a Paradox House snake before either. Haven't decided if it will be a keeper or not but it's a very strong possibility.

Re: Carrot, Paradox Albino Cape House snake.

That's am Awesome snake and a funny/fitting name. I also have never seen or heard of a paradox albino house snake. Maybe it's a first??? Hope it makes it and begins to eat for you. I look forward to more updates on this one. Best of luck!

Re: Carrot, Paradox Albino Cape House snake.

Normally I wait longer before resorting to force feeding, but since this one only got half it's yolk and doesn't have as much reserves, I went ahead and force fed a mouse tail tonight. Got it 3 quarters down and she finished swallowing it on her own, yay! That's a small, positive step in the direction of one eating entirely on it's own at least.

Well that's good it somewhat ate on its own with a little assistance. Hope it keeps it down and move onto non assist feeding soon.

Re: Carrot, Paradox Albino Cape House snake.

Wow! Congrats on the hatchling. Isn't it amazing how the really unique productions can be sidelined with developmental/genetic issues. Well, i'm sure with the breeding we do that it comes with the territory. Amazing reptile you produced there. I'm sure he's in very good hands that will give him a great chance to thrive. Yeah, strikes me as a definite holdback. Good luck.
