(Note this post is best viewed in threaded layout, where available.)

Living Gems Reptiles is pleased to finally profile the babies from its 2015 “B” litter.

Born on November 11, 2015 to Ramses (a September 2010 hypo male with an impeccable pedigree: his great-grandsnakes were the founder animals of the line, and he traces down directly by Michael Lockwood’s own hands)…

[i]Sire[/i]





…and Pearl (a highly outcrossed July 2010 het female noted for her strong orange color and a small “pearl” mark in her center head line)…

[i]Dam[/i]





…this litter represents the first pairing of these two animals.

The 19 babies in this litter split heavily towards the morph side, with twelve full hypos and seven hets. The gender split was more even, with ten males and nine females (with an almost perfect 50/50 split for each group). The babies got the best of both parents, with the hypos and het displaying huge orange potential. Interestingly, Pearl’s “pearl” proved to be an inherited trait, with about a third of the little ones showing a variant of the mark.

All have now shed twice (except two), eaten six-ish times, and had “confirmation” their digestion is properly working. As has been outlined in previous posts, all of these babies come from a disease-tested facility.

As with all LGR litters, we’ve done dozens of handling sessions for each baby, part of our commitment to start acclimating them to humans.

Over the following posts, please find a short profile of every baby in the litter. For each, a short description is provided, noting any behavioral or physical quirks, along with a selection of photos showing their development over the first two sheds. For dorsal chains, “short” means two to three linked spots, and “long” mean four or more.

So grab a cup of your favorite brew, sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Thank you as always,
-----
