Welcome to Profile 2 of 9 for Living Gems’ 2016 breeding season. Our second group is a repeat that pairs Franklin with Jadeite in search of both mixed orange and thick-border babies.

Franklin, a golden yellow/orange male of undetermined age, came to us as a proven breeder. He is one of the most patient animals we own, and never seems to stress about anything. He is also well known for his dramatic nighttime whitewalls, in which his sides lighten to a stunning white. For some reason, he always throws interesting litters: in 2013, he fathered giant babies; in 2014, he snuck in a few thick border babies; and in 2015…well, everyone misses sometimes. Here he is as of November 2015 (showing whitewalls):

As of his pre-breeding weigh-in, Franklin measured 1885 grams.

Jadeite, a medium orange July 2010 female, is known for her thick dorsal borders. Her half-sister Nephrite is also a breeder this year. The two show interesting differences in personality: whereas Nephrite is casual about handling, Jadeite will make absolutely sure she has a death grip on some part of you to prevent a fall. I suspect she must have suffered an early accident before she came to us. That aside, she is a friendly, inquisitive snake. This will mark her second breeding season with us. Here she is as of July 2015:

As of her pre-breeding weigh-in, Jadeite measured 2181 grams.

Last time this pair was together, they threw two surprise babies with abnormally thick dorsal borders. Here is one of one of those girls as of November 2015:

She will be a Living Gems breeder a few years down the line, but in the meantime we hope to see if they can capture the magic again.

If you like what you see, and want first dibs at any babies, you can sign up for the LGR Wait List here statictab.com/w5cjpkc.

As always, thank you for reading.
