Welcome to Profile 09 of 09 for Living Gems’ 2018 breeding season. Our ninth group pairs Vulcan with Pearl and Spessartine in search of reds.

Almandine was an incredible reddish orange female we lost during the move, and with her mate Scarface produced about 10-20% red and 80-90% orange babies, all high quality. Fortunately she was survived by a son. This snake, Vulcan – named for the god of fire and metalworking, not for the sci-fi character – was born in July 2013 and developed into a strong red holdback. He was a fast grower, and is friendly to a fault. Here he is as of January 2016:

As of his pre-breeding weigh-in, Vulcan measured 1749 grams.

Pearl, a July 2010 female, is sister to our overachieving breeder male Ceasarion, and has strong red in her lineage. She is a proven breeder who already produced a litter for us in November 2015. She is a het hypo, but this year we are using her for her normal genes. Here she is as basking her last litter as off October 2015:

As of her pre-breeding weigh-in, Pearl measured 2632 grams.

Spessartine, an August 2009 female from a high red lineage, is known as the “Ice Queen” at LGR due to the fact she has yet to find a suiter she likes: she rejected Prometheus in 2013, Prometheus again in 2014, DuVall in 2015, and Ericthonius in 2016. Thankfully, she has made good use of that time and her love of food: she is now our largest female by far, both in size and weight. Here she is as of October 2015:

As of her pre-breeding weigh-in, Spessartine measured 3249 grams (yes, that is almost twice the size of her boyfriend -- you see that in boas all the time, but not in rainbows).
