 Living Gems Babies: Litter 2015-B

On November 11, Living Gems Reptiles had its second litter of 2015.

The sire, Ramses, is a now-proven hypo four-year-old breeder male with an impeccable pedigree: his great-grandsnakes were the founder animals of the line, and he traces down directly by Michael Lockwood’s own hands.

The dam, Pearl, is an impressive orange four-year-old, outcrossed het hypo girl.

Here is the enclosure as I found it that morning, not long after she dropped. At this point, not a single baby was out and about. Note she has exited her lay box, then stuck her head back in to nose through the little ones:

You can faintly see her head in the lay box here, along with a pile of babies to the left:

Here is the enclosure that evening, when *everyone* was out and about:

Here was a mega cute row of baby rainbows, all in a row the night they were born:

And, as cleaning continued:

Exhausted Mom

Mom and babies are doing well. The babies, in fact, are finishing their first sheds, and were offered their first meal on the weekend, with a 100% take rate.

Thank you, as always, for reading.
