Living Gems Reptiles is pleased to finally profile the babies from its 2016 “A” litter.

Born on August 15, 2016 to DuVall (a July 2010 male noted for his intense orange color and a penchant for exploring)…

[i]Sire[/i]

As a yearling:


As an adult:


…and Nephrite (a July 2010 female noted for her solid orange color and her easygoing ways)…

[i]Dam[/i]

As a baby:


As an adult:


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

The 19 babies in this litter showed their potential from Day 1, with many of them hinting at their high orange heritage. They tend towards traditional dorsals, with a few short chains, though a few have chains of eight plus; and they have predominantly traditional side crescents, though there are a few unusual marks such as reverse bullseyes. They were also one of our feistier litters in recent memory, and made my fingers pay for early handling sessions…thankfully, as with most baby Brazilians, they have since tamed down. The gender split was slightly male-heavy, with ten boys and nine girls.

All have now shed twice, eaten seven 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,
