Living Gems Holdbacks: Litter 2014-B (cont’d)
As the rainbow community closes in on baby season, we wanted to update our readers on some of our past holdbacks. We will profile one or two little ones each week for a total of 17….taking us well into baby season. Note that only the adults who make the end collection as breeders get formal names, so our younger snakes will be referred to by number (this both saves names, as there are only so many good gem ones available, and lets customers choose their own name for any we rehome).
Hailing from our 2014 “B” litter, we have #09, #11, and #12. These babies were born on October 13 to Franklin, a golden yellow-orange male, and Jadeite, an orange female with slightly thicker black borders. Baby #12 had one of the thickest black border patterns I have to see on a rainbow, and will be key to working on the illusive but eventual all-black rainbow. (We profiled Baby #11 earlier this week, and Baby #09 last week.)
Here is Baby #12 as of her most recent photo shoot:
She weighed 114 grams of her last weigh-in.
As always, thank you for reading.
