    I have started this thread as there seems to be no permanent thread about arrivals/hatchings, etc.

    0.0.22 Burmese Python hatched
    0.0.2 Pignosed Turtle have arrived
    0.1 Eastern Quoll born

    22 Burmese Python? There must be some demand from the smaller wildlife parks.

    :p

    Yep, that is correct. Is this an unusually large number for this species?

    I suspect what Hix was getting at is, without the ability to disperse Burmese hatchlings to private keepers and it being uneconomic to export them, that many eggs would not have been incubated if there isn't interest in buying them from other parks.

    My post wasn't intended to relate to Hix's at all, I was curious as to if this is a large number for this species.

    Fair enough. I don't think it is a particularly large number.

    I read somewhere that Burmese can lay 40 or 50 eggs at a time.

    Is anyone in Australia trying to breed Retics?

    I suspect not, for the reasons CGSwans mentioned above. Then again, I didn't think anyone was trying to breed Burmese .....

    :p
