Jeff,

I caught my adults in April and haven't handled them much, because I wanted to get them "settled in." When it became apparent that the female was gravid, there was even more incentive to leave them be.

The babies are the same ones that I posted in the Summer. When they are born they do not have any red, but develop it over time. It only seems to take 2 or three sheds. It seems that there is an orange morph like the kind I posted, as well as a "high red" morph.

I'd call yours "high red." Here's one I found back in April.
