Black Rats hatching

I had a lady call me a couple of weeks ago about some snake eggs
that were found while removing a concrete pool in her backyard.
I picked them up and left them in the same soil they were found in
rather than changing the medium. They began hatching overnight
and there is a suprising range of color in the neonates.

Thanks, I am trying not to disturb them anymore till most are hatched. I am going to release them, but will take and post more pics at that time. There were a couple with heads stuck out of their eggs that pulled in when I disturbed them. kind of cute.

Thanks! There are 5 out of the egg this am and I am going to take a pic in a bit because I would like to get them into the wild as quickly as possible. These guys have hatched out late (almost like a second clutch) and I want to give them as much of a shot as possible. We are only about 30 days from frost here. I am putting them in a remote location with lots of cover and lizards.

Here are the 5 so far. A surprising variety of shades and markings. It is a great morning for a motorcycle ride, so I am on my way to release them.
