      Default 17TORTxBAC - Arabesque x Ultimate Aby

      Arabesque (unknown history) x Ultimate Aby (produced by big Mike)
      I'll keep this thread updated as things pan out.

      Introduced 9/16, the male was relentless.


      On 10/30 the male lost interest. On 11/1 I thought she might be starting to swell; her back half took on that soft look, her water intake increased dramatically, and then on 11/5 she blew up a bit.


      On 11/7 I witnessed what looked like a modestly-sized ovulation, and then on 11/9 she started blowing up again. I did not catch another ov, if she had one.

      Thanks all! It's been 18 days since Tortuga's last swell and she is headed into shed as I hoped she would be. She's spent the majority of the last two weeks outside her hides hanging around the cool end, and as this shed has neared she's begun to spend more time on the heat (fully utilizing her shelf at times). Her back end has become very soft and round in shape with some scale separation - all observations consistent with what I witnessed from my jungle girl two years ago. I know arabesques can be dodgy, but I am hoping her age (~8yrs) and maturity will help her stay the course.

      She shed out today, 12/5, and is on the heat. 105 days from today is March 20th. My last post threw me off looking at dates, it seems like an unusually short shed looking at my posts but I just did not document it very well. Mostly left her alone.

      As of 12/10 (trying to stick to once a month updates to avoid spamming the thread):



      She seems to be thinning out a tad up top but her back half has only barely increased in size - although I realize we're not even halfway through gestation. Really hoping she has at least a few viable babies in there.

      Following up with litter results.

      The female looked great until a month in and then stopped growing. As time went on I thought she might be carrying slugs but hoped otherwise. She dropped a few days early, and turns out she had 14 of them in there.


      Along with one extremely deformed still.


      Fortunately there were two live, healthy looking babies in there too. I'm grateful for these guys and incredibly excited to see how they turn out. The abybesque looks like it's going to have some good color come in as it grows.

      Bummer about the litter but glad you got two live ones out of it, they looks really nice too. Is the female doing okay?

      Thanks @[CENTER]Zaphod42 [/CENTER] I'm pretty happy with the ones that made it. The female is doing great, she kept a lot of good body condition and is back to her regular self so I am pleased.
