Well, got my adults warmed up and tried to feed today. The only ones that were interested were the Kingsville Reds... imagine that! Of all my bulls, the reds are the biggest, and best eaters by far. My male is over 6 ft, and about as big around as my wrist, my female is 2 yrs younger and not far behind. The eggs they laid last year were noticebly bigger than the morphs, and the babies hatched out looking positively obese. They never turn down food, I have them eat regularly even if they are in blue. My 2013 hatchlings are already as big if not bigger than yearlings, and have better color than anything else I've seen advertised for sale. They all went pretty quick, I only kept 1 female as a holdback. I;m anxious to see how she will color up and what she will produce as an adult.

Pre-shed hatchlings


Trying to capture color-


"Sockmonkey" freshly hatched, before being fed... notice the markings on her head... looks like a pissed off sock monkey...


Sockmonkey with other babies her age, the yellow one is older than her.
