Very pretty! I love the pattern on these.

I have a newb question. How do you determine the sex on hots? Does someone hold the business end while someone probes or pops the snake? Or is there a device that holds the head? What about vet care? Just curious Smile

There are several ways. In the old days, one would hold the head while another probed. Sometimes use something like a rolled up towel to hold the head down. Now days, most often you run the head up into a clear plastic tube and secure the business end, while you probe the other end. I am sure I have some tubing pics somewhere, will try to load one when I get home.
