Keep this thread updated
They are often kept as pets by children in Australia but they are actually named after John George Children who also had a stick insect named after him! Children was amongst other things the keeper of the department of zoology at the British Museum in the 1830s.

Anyway, here are a couple of pics I took today. First, the runt of the clutch, it hatched yesterday at a weight of 3g and is the smallest python I have ever seen:



There was still 4g of unabsorbed yolk in it's egg:



And here it is next to the first one to hatch at 9g:



They're probably a bit small for children at the moment but once they get to around 18" and 30g plus, they are ideal for kids in my opinion.

Thanks, the runt looks fine, it's just a third of the size of the largest ones! The first one shed today, once they've all shed, I'll start feeding.

Congrats on the cute little noodles, Chris.
I love side projects and all the different Python species that aren't seen as often as Balls and Morelia for example.
Always a kick in the nuts when you lose one in the egg. I know that feeling.

Cheers Dave, I've got 13 little spotty worms that all seem to be doing really well, even the tiny 3g one!

Looking forward to a load of little shed python skins next and then the fun starts with the feeding!!

Awesome news on all those little bitey bits of string! I can't believe how tiny the runt is, uber dinky!

Congrats
