Took video to document what’s happening. Normally I’d never disturb an egg, but I really want to make sure that it’s clear what’s coming out of this one.
I also dissected and took pictures of the last remaining egg - it contained a not-to-term fetus, similarly leucistic, so I think it’s safe to say this was a parthenogenetic clutch, as I obtained the snake as a virgin subadult and have never owned another Texas rat snake, let alone a leucistic one. I could post the pictures, but they are very gory (blood, yolk) and I am not sure people would want to see them.
I’m begging the universe to help this baby hatch. I want her alive so badly you can’t even imagine!
