We have some exciting news!  On Thursday, a local farmer brought us some Foxsnake eggs that he uncovered on his property just outside our study site. Thankfully, we have incubators available to us, so to protect this endangered species we decided to incubate the eggs and hope for the best! Well, today we discovered our efforts paid off…  The neonate Foxsnakes are pipping!  You can see that there are slits in a few of the eggs. The bubbles are the fluid spilling out through the eggs, and in some cases you can catch a glimpse of the neonate head poking through. It may take another day or two for the Foxsnakes to fully hatch out.  When they do, we will post pictures of the release.  Stay tuned!
