I have no idea. The eggs are much smaller than any of the others. I will keep everything from this clutch to see if these babies, when mature will also have small eggs. I will also be interested to see what kind of clutch she will lay next year.

Hi Mike,
It would be nice to do some proper research into these interesting variations but I guess we're never going to have time to do it!
I will dig out my notes but the "big clutch" snakes were well known of when I first visited Ghana and I made notes and saw the clutch sizes.
We use to allow maternal incubation then and all the females and clutch sizes were noted.
It is true that it is difficult to trust anyone in these Countries but we have been friends with this exporter for many Years. His family stay at my home when they are over and one of his sons stayed for a few Years!
The family are one of the oldest established exporters and actually started a certain Noah in business!
I'll try and find out a bit more information and will report back!

Out of curiosity, does anyone know if there are exporters who could obtain the "Sub-Saharan" - "Volta" region animals on behalf of someone like me?

There isn't much likleyhood of getting many snakes from the Volta region as the people there worship the royals as their Gods.
It is very difficult to collect royals from most parts of Volta, as you could be arrested, by the chiefs.
Aparts from the volta, they are also found in the some parts of Eastern region and Western region of Ghana where there is thick forest.

Awesome thread! Its great to see you have documented this well and given us accurate figures from the original gal as well as her daughters. Its really interesting that they too are producing larger than normal clutches 6kg Royal sounds monsterous! And I thought 3kg gals were massive :P
