On July, 11th 2012, nearly 24 hours after first pipping the egg, the Orianne Society welcomed a new baby Eastern Indigo Snake into the world.
Weighing 32.6 grams, the yet to be named Indigo, is the first hatchling bred at the Orianne Center for Indigo Conservation, in Eusitis, FL.

“We are thrilled with this first hatching at the OCIC and most of all, she appears to be normal and feisty! She is the first of many, many more to come,
as the Orianne Society forges ahead in our conservation efforts for the Eastern Indigo Snake,” said OCIC director, Fred Antonio.

The innovative OCIC facility is an essential element of the Orianne Society’s captive breeding program. Utilizing the latest in animal husbandry technology,
including a unique outdoor enclosure system, the OCIC will play a central role in the reintroduction of Eastern Indigo Snakes into wild places from which they are currently extirpated.
