GRAVID BURMS.....

LAST UPLOAD : 07-02-2004

 

A lotta time has passed, before I updated my breeding preps... Deana turned out to be a Dean, and so more has happened. !! A time in witch I redone some tanks, added a new glass enclosure, and made some re- arrangements in my collection. ( Dean is out, incoming ALBINO PATTERNLESS GREEN PHASE ! ) Asof 01-01-2004 Melanie is gravid, and has all the peace and silence of Main Breedding Tank 01. She is alone in there, and there's a 50 liter egg depository tank inside the enclosure. ( see pic below, click for an enlargement.. )

Meanwhile, Melanie is basking away in her own tank... she looks like a diamond... The second someone enters, she goes "heads up" to let us see she is there.. From now on, I'll handle no more, and let her have her peace.. Only in utterly need, she will be handled..  It goes whitout saying that Melanie, my trusted snake, is in exile... Thus meaning that she is sober from 01-11-2003 and starts to develop a gruwally appetite.. I cannot say ( although is is recorded ) when she ovulated exactly, but  I keep it at 01-01-2004 that she started. Possible fertilisation date is kept at 15-11-2004.  So counting by those figures... it's not long before she will lay some....

 

These 2 pics show Melanie in basking position...

below shows the pic I took, the second I noticed her laying like this... That's the best sign ever... It's called IBP ( inverted Basking Position ) A sign that she is getting ready to get gravid.
