In January I put together a pair of Het Albino Brazilian Rainbow Boas, Bianca and Norbert, together for the 2016 breeding season.  The pair had been together previously with no luck.  This year they were finally ready to go.  Saw them mating a couple times in February along with a hemipenal shed in the water bowl.  I would have preferred to see more activity but clearly in hind sight there was enough action between them.  On March 19th Bianca shed which placed her due date as July 14th.  She exhibited typical gravid female activity like hugging the heat, refusing meals and visibly getting larger.  On 06/21 I used my fetal heart monitor to check for baby heart beats and while they were not super easy to find I was able to detect some so I was sure there were babies in there.  Of course no way to know exactly how many or even if they were healthy enough to go full term.  On the morning of July 14th, I checked on her to find her in her hide box having just delivered her litter.  And even better, clearly there are Albino babies in the mix.

All the Albino babies all together...

 

After the were all cleaned up the final count was 3.4 Albinos and 5.7 66% het Albinos.  All full term, no yolk and decent size at 30 - 35 grams each.  No slugs and no still born babies.  All in all an amazing litter.
