Very nice!. Do you have any pics of this W/C pink sire with spots?????

The babies don't need to be offered any food until after their first shed(around 10 days or so). They have a natural head-start with a full belly of yolk when they hatch to get them well on their way in the wild. I don't EVER bother offering hatchlings anything until at least a few days after this post-hatching shed. I want to know they are actually starting to get hungry first as the yolk begins to get used up by the hatchling.
