What a sad day for me. Lilly my Normal ball python female laid her clutch of 7 eggs today and all 7 are slugs.
This is so strange, as she prevously laid 4 eggs, with 1 slug in that clutch.
The temps I keep my Ball Pythons at are exactly the same. This is my second clutch so far, with 5 more to come. First clutch is of 5 eggs and all fertile and should hatch in 13 days.
I wonder what went wrong, if anybody can give some information, as I have searched the internet and it can’t be a temp, humidity or stress issue, neither can it be the male as his other female partner’s eggs are due to hatch soon.
Below some further information:
Female: Lilly - Normal
7 years old
Second clutch laid
Had a break between first clutch and this one of 2 years.
Male: Ceazar - Cinnamon Pastel Hidden Gene Woma
He has sired numerous clutches for the owner I purchased him from.
I know although Lilly is only a Normal female, she is my first Ball Python I got and I raised her from a hatchling. She really means alot to me, so if there is something I am doing wrong or something I need to improve on then I want to do it.
Any advice would be appreciated.
