Parthenogenesis in Candoia paulsoni

I have a 4 year old female Solomon Island Ground Boa, produced by me and kept separate from any other snakes since birth, who delivered 6 live babies and a number of slugs this past Saturday. It was a shock, to say the least. None of the babies seemed especially vigorous and none shed properly. Sadly, I've already lost 4 of them, despite my best efforts. I corresponded with Warren Booth, who does parthenogenesis research, after finding the babies and he said that they're likely to do poorly. That's certainly been my experience so far but I'm holding out hope that at least one will survive. If anyone else has experience with a parthenogenetic Candoia litter, I'd be interested in hearing how it went for you. Thanks.
