Hello,
My San Felipe Rosy Boa gave birth to six healthy babies this morning! I am very happy that she had a large litter and that all are healthy and active. What I am most pleased about is her timing, or perhaps mine. Knowing that I would be away for most of the summer conducting my research, I timed everything (entrance and emergence to and from brumation, introduction of the male, anticipated time to ovulation, etc.) so that she would hopefully drop during my brief 2-week hiatus in July while between field sites. Well, I got back on Friday and she dropped today!
Anyway, enough rambling...
Here are the photos:






The unrelated sire and dam of this litter are both 100% locale specific animals descended from the San Felipe region. Both of their parents are the unrelated offspring of actual animals from the San Felipe region where they were collected in the early '90s.
Cheers,
Ryan
