This morning before leaving for work, the first of 4 expected Western Hognose clutches was laid.
It is a clutch of 8 apparently good eggs from my youngest (and smallest [about 300g]) adult female, sired by albino male.
I'll try to post some pictures later (when I get home from work) if I remember.

I'm totally excited, as this is my first hognose clutch EVER (just started keeping them a few years ago)...

Congrats!! I've got a baby albino that I would love to breed to a few girls someday.

Hope you have a great hatch rate and contact me if you plan to sell any females.

Just an update on this clutch... 2 of the 8 eggs ended up dying unfortunately... one was simply infertile and collapsed within a few days... the other was fertile, but ended up going brown and dying off a few weeks later.

Of the 6 that are still good, all 6 have tiny little hognose heads peeking out!!! BABY HOGNOSES!!!

Looks like Clutch 1 was fairly successful...

Since then I've gotten 3 more clutches which are currently incubating... 29 eggs total...
8 from this clutch, 14 from the second which was 100% Het Albino x Albino, 6 from another normal x Albino, and 1 from my Red female x Albino male (and that one may not be good... it was along with 11 slugs... :( )

i'm trying to find a 100% het albino female close to breeding size myself, i can get babies now, but looking for sub adult or adult as my male is breedable, any ideas on where to get one? dont really wanna wait and grow out 2 years on a baby, by then no one will want them cause the extremes will dominate :(
