>>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.

Thanks! Three hatched now and two slit. One egg looks like a "dud".

The dad was completely pink when found as a hatchling. Over the years the pink has faded to yellowish pink and black spots appeared. He is quite handsome. Mom is straight up black rat. Luckily both are very easy to handle, and have never bitten.
