Scarface-Almandine Baby Profiles (2015-A: Introduction)

Postby Snakesitter » Fri Nov 06, 2015 10:54 pm

Living Gems Reptiles is pleased to finally profile the babies from its 2015 “A” litter.

Born on September 2, 2015 to Scarface (a July 2008 male noted for his almost perfect side patterns)…

…and Almandine (a July 2008 female noted for her strong orange-red color)…

…this litter represents the second pairing of these strong breeders.

How strong?

In 2013, they produced this amazing high orange youngster (baby, current)…

…all in the same clutch.

I fully expect this new litter will have just as much potential.

As with the prior litter, the 26 babies in this new one seem to have inherited the best of both Mom and Dad. Several of them picked up and even enhanced their mother’s minor dorsal chaining. A few of them have a slight “blushing” effect where the color gets slightly darker in the center. All of them picked up their father’s consistent side crescents, with only a third of them having more than three departures from this norm (and even those no more than six or seven).

All except one have now shed twice, eaten three to five 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,
Cliff Earle

Well, in "theory" ;-), baby rainbows usually market for between $150 and $200. As an established, higher-end producer who adds extra value in other ways, I typically price mine a bit higher, between $150 and $250, with a few premium picks a year going for more.
