Pygmy eggs Hatching!!


Staff member
I am so excited to announce I just found 4 perfect little eggs laid by my very own CB female R. brevicaudatus named Batu. I still have Batu's father Tiberius (wc) though her mother Octavia (wc) passed away about 5 months ago. Batu was of their fourth clutch under my care, I watched her hatch, and she turned a year old last month. I'm a proud mama! Thanks Ataraxia for Batu's mate from the only shipment of pygmies I've seen since Tanzania closed! I have a trio in one viv and a pair in another but they weren't feeling the chemistry at all. I switched two of the females out and suddenly love is in the air! Both males seem much more interested in their current partners and even though Batu didn't get traded something worked. They've been together for a few months but it was only a week or two ago that I noticed she started looking plump, and Saturday I saw the outlines of eggs when she turned. Well yesterday evening she was thin as a twig so today I went and found her clutch! I'm so excited! :D :D

Each little egg is exactly 1cm in length.

I will be incubating them in moist vermiculite in a sealed container in a downstairs closet that stays in the 72-76 temperature range. Incubation period should be about 2 months.
