 Pairs 2015: Scar & Alman (Orange/Red)

Finally, Living Gems is reaching the scale where we can pick and choose our breeder animals for the next year. We will have ten females large enough to breed this season, from which we will choose eight.

Our fourth pairing this year puts together Scarface and Almandine in pursuit of an orange-red litter. It is a repeat of a highly successful pairing from 2013.

Scarface
The male, Scarface, is a gorgeous orange…

…who was born in July 2008.

Almandine
The female, Almandine, is a beautiful orange-red female who comes from a vibrant red lineage,

She was born in July 2008, and currently weighs a solid 2557 grams.

Their babies -- 20, last time -- should again run a literal rainbow from dark orange to brick red.

Thank you, as always, for reading.

Hey Takahiro!

It’s the way the scales are structured. If I recall correctly, I believe the technical term is "structural coloration." The scales act like a miniature prism.

However it happens though, it looks awesome!

Thank you for asking a good question!
