I am BRAD I liek SNEK.
Can someone in snake tumblr explain to me the purpose of cutting a clutch? Is it just to see what’s inside or is there some sort of health benefit..? it looks really scary, I’d be afraid of hurting the babby snek D:I don’t know too much myself but I’m fairly sure it’s just so excited breeders can see what their babies look like sooner.alouncaraandbutthurtherpetologistwould know more
early egg cutting ((pipping)) is a way to ensure that the babies all hatch out, rather than risking that one may not be able to hatch on its own and die in the egg. Its more or less to make sure the babies are able to survive hatching.
Though as I’ve said before, its a debated topic with many people arguing that babies that cannot hatch on their own should not survive. And I agree with that to a certain point.
seeing the babies early is a bonus though.
You can try switching her to the tub and see if that works, and as I’ve said, as long as she isn’t losing weight fasting is nothing to be concerned about. But the added security of the rack ((if its dark and cramped and not too big of a space in the rack)) may trigger a feeding response.
I’m not too knowledgeable on skinks at all. Maybe one of my followers can help here?
I’ll tag them as often as I can remember, But I don’t reblog them often, so one or two may slip through.
