    When I walked in this morning that little one was actually half out of the shell. I guess it is still really shy 🙂

    I think Kent said it would take up to 48 hours (typically 18-24 hours) before they decide to leave their shell, since they need time to absorb the remaining yolk.

    I wonder if that black band that runs across its face will fade away as the snake ages. I was looking at pictures of baby pines this morning and most of them had that thick black bandit mask, but as adults, I could only find a few with a thick mask. A couple had a thin line but most just had speckles. Is it a juvenile marking that most/all baby pines have or is it simply a common pattern that the snake grows out of as the scales become larger with age?

    two as of 10:10 AM, but no new photos to share as their heads are tucked back in the shells.

    Stay tuned…
