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

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

Born on October 30, 2016 to Scarface (a July 2008 orange male noted for his almost perfect side patterns)…

[i]Sire[/i]

As a baby:


As an adult:


…and Aventurine (a September 2010 orange female who was one of the early bullseye animals)…

[i]Dam[/i]

As a yearling:


As an (gravid!) adult:


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

Note Mom lost part of her color due to “color fade,” partly I suspect due to stress from the cross-country move, but remains perfectly healthy. She will be a breeder again this year, again with Scarface (you’re about to see why!).

The 13 babies in this litter feature wonderful color, often with shades of both orange *and* red, as well as rich thick side crescents. The litter is male heavy, with eight boys and five girls.

At 15 months old, they are well-tested and healthy; eating, shedding, and pooping with no problems. 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. This litter, however, is a teeny bit feistier than normal, I suspect because they were born *right* before my move, and as such were lightly handled during their first two weeks before resuming normal practice. I expect this will pass quickly with regular handling by their new human(s).

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,
