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

Living Gems Reptiles is pleased to finally profile the babies from its 2016 “B” litter. This has been a long-delayed post due to the combination of a late birth and cross-country move.

Born on October 3, 2016 to Caesarion (a July 2010 male noted for his proven Don Juan abilities and now rare Tim Frazier blood)…

[i]Sire[/i]

As a baby:


As an adult:


…and Malchite (an August 2008 female noted for her reddish color)…

[i]Dam[/i]

As a baby:


As an adult:


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

The 20 babies in this litter are showing both their sire’s orange and their dam’s red heritage. They have mostly traditional dorsals, with only a few short chains; and they have predominantly traditional side crescents, with only a few unusual marks. The gender split was female-heavy, with eight boys and twelve girls.

All have now shed at least three times, eaten ten 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 few 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,
