That was fascinating, Anatess. I had to read the whole thread to find out what happened to 'Bugsy.' I've seen photos of an eye like Bugsy's before, on TCS - the snake was normal but then developed the swollen eyecap - in the end the eye had to be removed, sadly, but the snake is doing well; she's much loved and looks to be enjoying life. I too have a snake, little Cy (Cyclops) who hatched minus left eye and socket (I bought her because I was afraid no-one else would want her.) She seems to find it a bit bewildering sometimes, having no vision on that side, but I don't think it interferes much with her enjoyment of life - she's a little tiger! So I hope Bugsy has a long and happy life, and that goes for the rest of them.

Yeah, I was kinda p***ed at that guy who said to put bugsy in the freezer because that eye will always be a problem or some such...

Sometimes, I just don't understand people!

So, how is the OP's snake? Any updates???

I'm really interested to know what sex the baby is...

Snake owner since Oct 2008, so yeah, I'm no expert.

Hi everybody,
Now you may not believe this but.....she's done it again!
7 yes 7 years later and still no contact with other snakes.
This is what I came down to this morning.
I can only see 1 egg at the moment, she may be laying on more but I'm not going to disturb her.
The egg is approximately 2-2.5 inces long (guessing here as I don't want to put my hand in and upset her!).

P.s. As for the other time this happened, the baby died the day after my post. Sorry I didn't come back and 'update' everybody as promised but I think I was saddened by it's death and forgot to let people know.

Hi everybody,
In case anybody wanted to know it's not good news I'm afraid.
The eggs collapsed quite quickly and they came up duds when I candled them.
However, Brian (I named her before we discovered she was female) is eating regularly and getting her weight back up so I'm happy for that.
