    Wow Do they each have their own sack or all one big sack?

    They are not just snakes. They're garter snakes.

    That's pretty amazing! It's a little odd to actually see a reptile give birth to live tiny baby snakes! I'm very surprised to see her giving birth to dark babies, too.

    Is that one of your girls Steve? I saw it said "T. Radix Ranch" on the video.

    That was my Rita, albino red phase T.radix. She passed from a pulmonary embolism.

    That's too bad, I'm very sorry to hear that. She looks very beautiful, and I'm sure she produced very beautiful little ones(the ones I saw looked very nice).

    I wasn't aware that snakes could have pulmonary emboli. I guess it could happen to anything with lungs and bloodflow. Just out of curiosity, how would you know if that happened? Snake autopsy?

    Yes. I did a necropsy and had my Vet. confirm my findings.
    He said that she would have died from this even if he had been there to treat her.

    In my experience, the bellybuttons last for a few months. At least, that is the case with northwesterns.
