When do you take your ball pythons eggs?!?!

Hey everyone! I just found my girl is on eggs! There were no eggs this morning when i went to work. Its been about 8 hrs. How long does it take them to lay all there eggs? How long should i wait before taking them?

It can take a few hours for then to finish laying once they start — I’ll usually take the eggs as soon as I think they’re finished laying, if they’re not done then you’ll want to put them back to let them finish!


Look really close at the end of her body. The whole thing should look pretty deflated when she has laid them all. If she hasn’t you can usually detect a bulge in her lowest portion of her. If you see no bulge, then try to unwrap her from the eggs and you will be able to see if her belly is concave all the way done to the vent.
