We are constantly updating them with new (and old) videos of anything and everything that goes on here at The Zoo. Lately we have had more old videos than new, but that is changing now that we have a better system going. We will have more new videos out to you now!!
So, in "celebration" of this new video excitement, we are featuring one on our blog every so often, just to give you a little more info on what's going on. Today, we are featuring a fun video titled "Jay teaches the kids in the zoo about Ball Python eggs". Pretty self-explanatory right?
Well, these were kids that come in to the zoo frequently and actually owned ball pythons of their own. The owner, Jay, gave them direct advice on how to pull their own clutch of eggs. This day was special because they got to see first-hand how a clutch is pulled, cut, and classified. At the end of the video, Jay even gives several important tips on proper technique and care.
The eggs shown in the video were an amazing and informative GENETICS lesson for the kids...showing how parents with genes such as "pastel" and "lemonblast" can not only produce more pastels and lemonblasts, but also normals and "pinstripes", among others. Jay also teaches the kids the difference between fertile and infertile eggs...to prevent the unnecessary incubation of infertiles.
With this new knowledge, the excited kids were able to leave, confident they could successfully pull their very own ball python clutch at home. Hope you like the video!
