Oreocryptophis p. pulcher babies

After 61 days at 78F, my Yunnan Mountain ratsnakes (Oreocryptophis p. pulcher) have finally hatched. I ended up with 4 healthy babies from the 1st clutch and one slug. She gave me a second, smaller clutch last week. The second clutch was only 3 eggs...one obvious slug and 2 ugly, but hopefully viable eggs (candled veins on them).

I'm kind of excited about these guys because the parents are LTC's so they represent some fresh, pure bloodlines of a subspecies that has unfortunately seen it's share of subspecies crossbreeding in the U.S reptile hobby.

Wow!! Very nice Chris!!! Kudos to you for keeping this sub species "pure" and creating some fresh genetics for the US gene pool. I too have seen those disgraceful Porph-hybrids.

Thanks! The crosses aren't really my thing but the breeders that I know of have represented them as what they are. I think they could easily be misrepresented by others since many of them are very pulcher like in appearance.

Now I just want to see some more vaillanti in the U.S.

Very nice! Congrats!
Do you know genders yet?

I'm going to let them have their 1st shed and meal before I probe them. I'll send you a PM when I know.
