Problems with young.Part 1.
Infant vardousia or hardened yolks, hard belly, mass in Ball python hatchlings.
Newborn Regius, born in razvodnyh world level (captive breed, next, CB) or on a snake farm in the wilds of the jungle (farm breed, then FB), sometimes present surprises. In the last third of the body they have formed a small swelling. If you palpate the area, you’ll find some solid foreign body. It can be of different sizes and in some cases take up half the volume of the digestive tract of the snake. It’s not stool, as some might think, this so-called hardened yolk (hard yolk). Foreign colleagues use the term “hard belly” to refer to this problem, in a literal translation on Russian it sounds like vardousia.
The good news is tendopathies suffer only newborn Regiony. Suffer the vast majority of cases, not for long. Somehow solid the yolk mass is blocking the intestine, which threatens the life of a newborn Python. If the mass, which is visually similar to the oblong lump of matter, not removed in time, the snake will die of starvation and dehydration. If you delete, the chances of survival of the young of Ragusa will be slightly higher, but according to statistics, only 10-20% of the pups live longer than two months after the procedure.
Removing Python from the tumor, by contacting the veterinarian or yourself. In any case, you should be prepared for the fact that a dense mass inside the belly of a snake Continue reading
Discovered new species of snakes and arthropods
It would seem, at the dawn of the new Millennium, it is difficult to find new species of animals, but yet scientists continue to surprise us. Research is successful quite often: for example, in South East Asia were found unique flying snakes. but in Indonesia – the new Gecko. And again found unknown fauna.
Long-term field and laboratory work by a group of zoologists led by Omar Torres-Carvajal (Museum of Zoology, Pontifical Catholic University of Ecuador) led to the discovery in the forests in northwestern Ecuador a new species remnevidnyh thick-headed serpent, which was named Imantodes chocoensis.
To allocate a new view that allowed features of the structure of the head. Later DNA analysis confirmed the hypothesis and allowed us to determine the closest relatives of snakes. They were members of the species that live in the Amazon basin on the other side of the Andes. “One possible explanation for the differences Imantodes chocoensis and its closest relative is that the uplift of the Andes have divided the original population into two parts, each of which has evolved into a separate species,” said Dr Torres-Carvajal.
Remnevidnyh thick-headed snakes live in Mexico and Argentina and are different from other snakes of the New World with Continue reading
