I never watch a python laying her eggs. Have you? I bet most of you don't..so which is why I'm going to share with you a video of 'Big Mama', a 7-metre long python who just gave birth this April! =D
She was delivering her python eggs in a snake farm next to the famous Snake Temple in Bayan Lepas, Penang. The snake farm reported that Big Mama was already pregnant when she was brought to the farm. She's reported to be 20-30 years of age, based on her size.
Up to this video was recorded, she had already laid 21 eggs. Normally, a python can lay up to 50 eggs one time! Can't imagine giving birth 50 times man....that must be...painful. Very. Very very very, VERY, painful.
The eggs would take up to 10 weeks to hatch and their survival rate would be 70%. That's quite high and it's a good thing, since it's a protected animal. I mean, endangered species. Ya la same thing la. xD
The farm will report to the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (DWNP) on the number of eggs laid and hatched.
So mark the date- 23 April as the newborns's birthdates!
