Melanie lays her eggs... ( 09-02-2004 at around 1830 )

Oh gosh... oh wooow.... she F^%ING did it !! for real !!! As I entered the enclosure yesterday, Melanie was in the process of egg depositing !!! And the most funny thing was that the breeder from whom I baught Mel, was with me... he saw his little girl, becoming a woman yesterday. I know it sounds sentimental, but it made me almost cry, looking at my baby... It took me 3 years of undevoted attention, and it paid off great ! Itīs a true bred Wild Phase cross, and I canīt wait till it all hatches...

Delivery went completly without problems ( HELL YEAH !! ), and mummy is going on like nothing happened at all...

We seperated her from the eggs at 10-02-2004 at 0715.

THANKS TO GOD !!!!!
