 More Rainbow Babies (Litter 2014-C, Ramses-Jasper)

On Tuesday, November 18, Living Gems welcomed its third and final litter of the year. The pairing between Ramses, an impressive hypo male with an impeccable lineage, and Jasper, a normal bullseye female, produced 13 large and active het hypo babies.

Three morning shots, just after discovering the slime pile:




And three evening shots, after everyone had dispersed and explored (and wore down Mom’s patience):

Mom “Hiding” From Her Kids

Babies Hiding From Everyone

The babies averaged 35 grams each, which is on the larger side.

One week later, Mom and babies are doing well.

Thank you, as always, for reading.

Impressive as always snakesitter lol :) by looking at the first pic it looks like a lot work cleaning the cage...but how do youclean the babies after their born? And is the mom okay with you seperating her from the babies?

***Thanks for the update, sorry for the late reply my burm got belly splinters so I was getting bitten like crazy today and was tired...he was free roaming and was slithering over wood that I used to build the new monitors cage.

Why thank you!

Birth cleanup is harder when Mom drops in the enclosure itself, as opposed to her hide or water bowl.

The babies clean themselves, either in the water, or the moss, or the newspaper, just by slithering around. If one was still slimy, though, I’d use paper towel by letting it crawl through a loosely tunneled sheet.

Mom is OK with separation...though that may be because my females know me well by virtue of keeping a small, regularly handed collection. At least, I’ve never had a Mom get nippy with me (knocks on wood)!

Thank for commenting!

Great pics, congrats! Glad to hear Mom and young ones are all well.

Not sure if you or any of the other regulars on here remember me at all, but just recently got back on here and was happy to see y’all still posting and helping out.
