Frank, I was talking to one of the Nattereri Breeders the other day. The bulge that females get came up in the conversation. We came up with the hypothesis that perhaps not all females have the ability to deliver huge amounts of eggs like others.

Or in other words that not all females are as good of brood mares as others.
Many other animals are this way, like with humans there women out there that can have 10 kids and others that cant even have one.

Is there any research or information available on this topic? The reason we talked about it is pictures like this one


not all females get a bulge that big so we thought maybe certain special females have greater abilities to reproduce

what is your thoughts?

Then why ask me for opinion when you have already concluded the outcome with your own answer?

Pardon my ignorance, but is the bulge always there, or only there during certain times? i.e. like when a dog is in heat. Just curious.

From my own observations there is always a slight bulge, and thats how I sex them, but when they are ready to mate the bulge grows considerably

Frank, what do you think about my questions?

To a layman as myself, I would think it would be like any other attribute, some are better than others. I doubt every Jaguar runs at the same top speed so some would be faster than others. It would make sense that, as with every species, with the exception of microorganisms that reproduce by splitting, there would be differences from one individual to the next.

dont be a jerk
Nate it is obvious to me that Frank is not interested, and asking him not to be a jerk is just plain rude.

I have already contact Bcollins111900 with my explanation for the non-answer. Nate, you are at your own level of comprehension so take it anyway you want.

Nate what's the point in constantly badgering him with questions you already have formulated an answer for? Grow up already, your immature tirades are old and not wanted anymore.
