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.

Re: First Hognose Clutch

Beautiful clutch! I love the orange one. Is that the super albino?

Yep. My daughter has actually asked to keep that one. She's a little older now, so I told her she can have it. Worst case scenario, I sell it at a later date if she decides she doesn't want it anymore.

Re: First Hognose Clutch

Congrats on the new hatchlings. Now comes the fun part, getting them to eat rodents. Did you use an incubator for the eggs?

I used an incubator I made a few years ago for geckos.
