  • 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.

    To some people, all those snakes literally hanging all over the cage would be a nightmare. They are so adorable!
