Living Gems Holdbacks: Litter 2013-B
As the rainbow community is now well into baby season (except us, who are still waiting on our first girl), we wanted to update our readers on some of our past holdbacks. 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 2013 “B” litter, we have #062. These babies were born on August 21 to Picasso, a dual-orange male, and Malachite, a large reddish female (to this day she has delivered our largest litter, 22 babies). Holdback choices were tough, and this little lady became her litter’s sole placeholder partway through the sales process, taking the place of my initial choice. She is developing a dual orange color scheme reminiscent of her father.
Here is Juvie #62 as of her most recent photo shoot:
She weighed around 500 grams of her last weigh-in.
As always, thank you for reading.
