>>Thanks Terry - yep, one from this clutch. Several hatched out from her first clutch of the year though. I am not unhappy with this little one, and have not really been unhappy with any of the ones which have hatched out slightly kinked over the last few years. This one's tail tip kink is tiny, and it is all a learning experience anyway - and I may keep this latest one to mix into another line of Santa Ritas - or make generics...

>>Tamarindo, C. R. - Costa Rica? Wow, very nice - doing any herping down there?

Yep, Costa Rica. I couldn't get access to a computer very often, but we are home now. I didn't see any snakes, because it was the wrong time of the year for them, very dry where we were at, northwest coast. We did see some lizards and crocs though and lots of birds, of course.

I got my green rats back to the back porch this week, which is more humid than in the house. I also cranked up the heat to the low 70's. Two of my four 2012 babies ate f/t pinks right away, one had eaten f/t before. I was pretty happy about that. I'm thinking they might both be females, but I don't really know for sure, yet. The conditions I have them in now seem to be ideal for the babies. My 2011 female is growing like a weed. She is 3 times the size of her brother, at least, but the male is fairly active too.

PS: I think they might be large enough to breed at 2.5 yrs. old.?
