This ball python egg has twins in it.
It’s not the first time I’ve had twins in an egg. I had them once before several years ago, but didn’t realize it until they were already out. This is the first time for me to catch them on camera.
Both are smaller than a normal Ball Python hatchling, because they have to share the space of a single egg. Normally a hatchling is around 70 grams in size. The smallest of these two is only 24 grams, but as of now, she has eaten her first mouse, the same day as the rest of the clutch did. So she’s tiny, but not going to get left behind.
The bigger one is 38 grams.

Sadly Phoenix, the sire of this clutch, is no longer with us. One one of the coldest weeks of this last winter, we had an issue with heat on the bottom row of his rack, and he and one other, didn’t survive.
