La Quinta, CA Kingsnake, female no. 3, second 2018 clutch for this female

She laid a mostly bad clutch (4 are going to hatch in a couple weeks) on April 27. This is her second clutch, I saw her starting to lay at 1 AM this morning and this is what greeted me at  7:30 AM –















And here is the count. 9 total. 3 obvious slugs. Of the 6 remaining, 5 look (to me) like they are good. Those three slugs are in my trash can. I know other people try to incubate those. If you put those in your incubator… I have a message for you, “get a grip.”
