Herper Question of the Week

 

Many of you ask:  "Why do you cut snake eggs open, instead of letting them hatch on their own?"

 

 

Here at Prehistoric, we cut our eggs after the first one in the clutch starts to pip.  This means that the snake is far enough along to start to break out of the egg, and has already made a tiny hole.  It is safe for the snakes because they are, themselves, trying to hatch at that time.

 

 

The reason we cut them, instead of letting them hatch themselves is because occasionally a snake will not be able to break its shell, and will drown in the fluids.  Opening them ourselves ensures the highest number of surviving hatchlings.  The fact that it shows us what morphs we have is just a bonus.   :-)

 

 

Please continue to ask questions, we are always here to get you the best information possible.  Call, email, stop by, or post on our Facebook pages and we will do our best to answer promptly.  Thanks everyone!
