Unhappy Childresn python finally laid eggs and they are all BAD!!!!!

AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I waited for this for the last nine months! That childrens python I kept posting about (the Henry Piorun bloodline) that I thought was gravid, then not...people looked at her and couldn't tell. She mated with the male, nothing happened, 4 months later she was cooled (on the advice of a few other people who have bred this species before). She came out of cooling and refused food for a month and a half, then laid 8 eggs that are all moldy! Now maybe I missed the eggs, because I wasn't expecting them, these were my first snake eggs, but I don't know what happened. I AM SO MAD!!!! This is so not fair. She won't be able to breed agian this year will she? This is justy so not fair and I have few friends that care about snakes so I had to tell someone!!!! Thanks for listening to my ranting. Someone just kill me, life is so unfair to me!!!!

Lisa, Don't beat yourself up over this, Pythons are far more difficult to breed then Beardies and Leos and everyone experiences situations like yours at one point or another.
I have! Like Xotex said, Chalk it up as a learning experience and give it another go next year. And remember....We're all here for ya!

sorry to hear Lisa.....pythons aren't as easy to breed as most takes a bit more than luck I am afraid. But you should take this as a learnign experience and hope for better luck next season. I would pump her full of good fat mice and get her ready for the next clutch.

sorry about that. Dont worry i remember when 1st leo had its 1st egg and a cricket got to it before i could. Then later she died and i wanted her offspring!!!!!!!!!! Remember it could have been worst (like mine). hope this helps.

Thank you all, I was away for the weekend and now that I see this it makes me feel a lot better. She wasn't gravid when i got her, but she mated with the male around Christmas and form what I assumed, and others as well, nothing came of it, so I cooled her to try again. Big mistake I guess. Many things could have killed these eggs...the cooling, the fact that I wasn't expecting them and they may have been in there for a while, and the fact that the male was in there too and the weight of both of them on the eggs maybe flattened them...I dunno. But I was very pissed becuase I have been growing up different species of boas and pythons for years and these were the first ones that ever bred for me. But I appreciate all you have said because I have never posted on here before and I really didn't expect a reply. But thank you very much. Lizard breeding is easy, but I guess snakes are more difficult. I appreciate all of your replies. I'll fatten her up for next year I guess, and this time I'll be more careful! Thanks again.
